    [​IMG] He's not a silver spangled Hamburg. He looks somewhat but not 100% like a Fayoumi. Picture for me is a little too blurry to be really definitive.

    He isn't a Hamburgh, as they have rose combs. Your boy's feather color is a poor example of silver penciling. This makes him likely to be a hatchery quality Silver Campine, or Egyptian Fayoumi.
