    What does BYC think?
    I guessed an OE of some kind, as I am told it is a bantam, but other than that I can't say I've figured it out.
    The chicken was sold at a local feed store or something, so I don't think it is a mutt from someone's personal group.

    Looks like a cross between a Black Breasted Red and Silver DuckWing Old English Game Bantam Rooster.

    Well, that makes me feel better that my first impulse of it being an OE shouldn't be way off.

    It looks like a young siver duckwing Old English Game bantam rooster.

    I would say an OEG... But then again you were looking for educated guesses. [​IMG]

    Chris, Tom , & Silkie -

    I think you are all correct!
    I found a picture of another Silver Duckwing that does look quite similar:

    They look just like my OE Bantams that I gave to my friend.

    Quote:Is that the specific OE's you had?
    I am just asking for a fellow who wasn't sure what he had. Very pretty bird though.
