    Got a batch of hatching eggs from the University of Arkansas. I can't [​IMG]
    identify this lil chicken. It doesn't match anything they offered. Can anyone identify this weirdo? Lol

    He could be some type of game bantam. I'm not sure what breed exactly but he sure is pretty cockerel! What exactly does the university offer? That might help narrow down the breeds. Could he be mixed?

    Looks like it could possibly be a BB Red Cubalaya cockerel.

    Definitely a very handsome cockerel. No doubt at all.
