    This handsome young man is approximately 3 months old, crows all the time, and doesn't like cats. I got him along with a few other bantam chicks from TSC this spring and I still have no idea what breed he is, but I am leaning towards Mutt. Does anyone else have ideas?

    Most likely a Sebright/ Old English Game Bantam Cross.
    A particular hatchery is known for crossing other breeds into the Old English to get a lot of there long list of "odd ball" colors.

    If it was a Sebright he would have a Rose Comb but on the other hand if he was a Old English he wouldn't have Slate legs or that body type.


    Edited for typo changed he would have Slate to he wouldn't have Slate
