    Imagine my surprised when my parents came back from a out of trip with two bantam roosters. I have no idea what breed they are but guessing somewhere along the line of Old English game bantam x Sebright or something? I didn't get any pictures of the other rooster because he's just too wild, you can't even get near it without it clucking and trying to get away. This guy is more calm but just almost as wild, that's why I used a rope.

    Any help on IDing these guys would be greatly appreciated.

    Perhaps a black breasted old english game?

    The colors of the feathers looks a lot like my wellie bantam but the comb is different.

    Yep, he looks dubbed. Dubbing which is trimming the comb is the breed standard for shows and they do come in the larger standard size. He is a real looker. By the way, find some treats that they like, and they will hang around you more.


    I have some Old English Game roosters who are not dubbed.
