    I picked up 7 new bantam chicks from
    one of the local feed stores.
    And I have 1 that is driving me crazy.
    I know he is a rooster, which sure makes my sad.
    I all ready have 3 grown bantam roos, not sure I need another one.
    His feathers is what is bugging me. He is clean legged and strait comb.
    And I was thinking OEG, but a friend and I both not so sure.
    here are several pictures of the colorfull little guy.
    his feathers are somewhat fluffy and jagged.

    How old? It looks like a Japanese bantam to me.

    He is 6 maybe 8 weeks old.
    I'm bad about writing down when I get chicks.
    and I never thought about him being a Japanese Bantam
    I guess his feathers had me off track. And didn't know they
    had this color patteren
    but now you saying that, watching him, the body posture is right.
