    Hello,

    This little fellow just joined my flock. His family bought him as a chick from TSC this past March. He is a very long-legged little fellow. What is he? What is his coloring called?

    Thank-you. He's cute and I wish I knew what he was. I thought maybe a dutch bantam? Or maybe an old english game? I thought he could be a Japanese, but his legs are very, long. Gangly, really.

    Can you post a pic of him standing up so we can see the legs, stance, body/wing carriage, and build?

    Here is a picture of him standing. I apologize that it isn't great. He's an active little guy.

    Maybe? Do they have a bantam variety. I thought light brown leghorns had yellow legs? This is a hatchery bird, so who knows?

    He looks like he might be a Modern Game bantam.

    Quote:Yes they do have a bantam variety, they are suppose to have yellow legs but some are sort of swarthy
