    This little guy was sold with the breed Old English Game Bantam, but some people at the farm say he looks like a serama. He's still young and being trained to hold his tail up.

    the female is a bit flighty so she couldnt stand still but shes behind him.

    Good looking bird. Is that his normal posture?

    He looks like some of the accidental crosses of OEGB and Serama that occurred on my place two years back.

    @JJSS89 yes this is his normal posture. He walks like this etc. He's very sweet and docile though his mate is still shy and flighty.

    Tough to say at this point. When he gets a little older, a side profile shot would be more definitive. His legs look mighty short for a high station OEGB but I am far from an expert.

    @JJSS89 Im pretty sure he's at least a year old now. His mate looks like a serama as well, ill have to try and get more shots. I really dont think he's an OEGB because of his posture and the way he holds up his tail when trained.

    He looks more like a Serama to me.

    Probably a Serama.
