    I had a neighbor give us a few chicks when they were only about 2 days old at the beginning of June. However, I can not remember what breed this male is from the chicks our neighbor gave us. I think he might be an OEG. What breed do you think he might be??? [​IMG]

    Def not an OEG, wrong comb and the head looks too short as well, the body stance is definitly game.

    I am thinking maybe cubalayaXoeg? The comb looks like a cross between Pea(cubalaya) and Single(Oeg).

    considering where you're at, and that its a largefowl game body with a peacomb i'd say american game.

    He looks to be on the younger side. How old is he? He just seems to large to be completely bantam.

    The pea comb could be from his mother being a game hen and his father being an Easter Egger. He has the game body, but the comb could be coming from the father.

    He was hatched the last wkend in May. So, I guess that wld make him 5 mos. He's so pretty to me & I really don't mind what breed he is, I'm just curious as to everyone's opinions. He looks exactly like his dad. He has a brother that's red & black & his sister that we have is a light tan color with little bit of black. I'll take & post pics of them in the near future. He is very protective of the hens & out of the 4 our neighbor gave us (one died a wk after we got them so I have 3 left now) he was the runt. When he was just starting to get his feathers he wld really enjoy us picking him up. He's quite the hog though w/ the veggie scraps now, so you'd never know he was the runt. I've always wondered as to his breed since he's not a bantam size roo and neither is his bro or sis. The ones our neighbor gave us seem to be a bit on the flighty side compared to the rest of our chickens, but not as horrible as leghorns can be. They are great pets and great entertainment, that's for sure. Many thanks to everyone for their input re my roo! I really appreciate it! [​IMG]

    he is most likely a American game, His color is Grey, leg colors, And comb types can be anything in Gamefowl because many american gamefowl have asils (or Aseels). Cubans. and any other type of gamefowl crossed into them. Peacomb.. which come from the asian (Asils, Tuzos, etc). Are most common in american gamefowl as people seem to like them more. They also may have rose combs from spanish/cubans. and any other comb type...
