    It looks almost exactly like a Self Blue Dutch Bantam to me.

    i think Dutch have white earlobes.
    He also looks too big to be a bantam, possibly a cross. Both of his parents had to have the lavendar/self blue gene for him to be Lav/self blue. He coloring looks more like Porcelin, kind of like a lavendar BBR or partridge.

    His comb froze one day when it was to cold outside. So the father doesn't have the tips on the comb.

    he looks like a mix of a large fowl bird and a bantam bird

    well, the question is, what is his father, cause he didn't fall far from the tree.

    I don't really think the father looks much like a porceline. And from my experience, porceline's tails aren't typically darker than their bodies..
