    Hi, hope you are enjoying BYC! :frow

    He is a pretty boy. :love

    Not sure on breed... but pretty sure he is under a year according to the size of his spurs. But there might be shadows playing tricks on me. Can you get a closer pic of the feet?

    According to the tail feather quality... there were plenty of chicken antics at his previous home. It looks like flock dynamics anyways. Wouldn't hurt to check him for bugs.

    And his color might be mille fleur and that looks like it might be a pea comb.... Just stating some clues. :)

    He's probably around a year old. He looks fully mature, but the feet and legs are smooth. Breed is tough to tell. Unless I'm seeing the picture wrong it looks like he might have an extra toe. So he possibly has some Silkie blood but he's more game bantam in type. Probably some spangled Old English game bantam involved.

    That's what I thought too. :thumbsup

    Was also thinking something "game", but couldn't tell size.

    Thank you guys so much! I will get a close up of him this afternoon when I have better light. He seems friendly I just hope he’s not carrying any bugs or sickness that might infect my ladies.

    Game mix. I think I'm seeing a fifth toe in the first pic. I'd say around a year old as well.
