    Been a while since I have been here but I was looking at my rooster and i was wondering if he is an old english bantam or some old english mix . I just thought it would be cool if he is because I bought him off the side of the road for like 5 bucks lol, thanks!

    Thanks!



    Yeah he does, plenty of feathers on his leg! He's still young also, the spiky thing on his leg (spurs?) is still small, when I got him they were like little bumbs.

    Old English should not have feathered legs, they're clean legged birds.

    Interesting bird. I wonder if he is a Langshan or Marans mixed with game.

    Those sound like some fancy breeds [​IMG] hes definitely tiny though. The hens are all about the same size as him or bigger haha. Where I bought him at, they had 2 other roosters and both older but still just as good looking! One exactly like this one and the other was like a white/blonde everywhere except the same tail as mine. Makes me wanna ditch my hens and collect roosters [​IMG]. I think its safe to say though that hes some crazy mix?

    Maybe a favrolles mix, colors are close, feathered legs but not seeing the beard and cheeks though.
