    That is an Old English Game Bantam. I believe that his coloring is Black Breasted Red, not Brown Red.

    Looks like an OEGB, but I'm not sure what variety that is. Could be a poor-quality Brown Red, I suppose, or he could just be a mix.

    Thanks everyone. I think it is a mix also, but i waas told that is what a brown red is, a mix of BB red and something else.
