    This guy is gamey and I have had to get after him more than a couple times. He carries his wings pointed down.

    Also interested in breed of hen pictured beside him. She is teenincy and fast. This is a bad, incomplete pic, but somebody may know...

    Here's my big roo, I assume his is a RIR, am I correct? He is HUGE, and sorta docile.

    He looks like an Old English Game.

    Red Pyle Old English Game Bantam.

    The second is a very nice RIR - I'd keep him and breed him, chances are you'll get better RIRs than the average hatchery junk. [​IMG]

    Old English Game Bantam.. Hen, possibly a Sebright.. Would had to have better photos. The big rooster is a Rhode Island Red I'd say.

    Wow, thank you all, I appreciate it. I'm crossing that RIR with my Red Stars, hoping to get some good layers. I was incubating a lot of them, then lost power. It is nice to have people to discuss this stuff with, besides the folks at work, who don't raise chickens and get bored to death. Thanks.

    Yes, I think the hen is a Golden Sebright. I have one. They're so cute! I also have a Silver Sebright pullet and two Silver Sebright roos - these are really cute birds.
