I think that's an Old English Game bird.
It's a drawing that appears to have used a Golden Duckwing Old English Game rooster for its inspiration.
Yes, but the comb is wrong, and it is too heavy-set.
I agree, but whoever drew it probably had no idea. They may have even been looking at one from a distance or from a photograph, or they have taken some artistic liberties. )
I posted this photo to find out what breed this is because I had a rooster that looked identical to this photo and to this day I have no idea what breed he was. Someone had given him to me before he was fully grown and then he got killed by a neighbors dog soon after all his beautiful plumage came in. He was full size (not a bantam) with the creamy feathers around his neck, he had royal blue feathers under those and beautiful teal green tail feathers. He also had a rosecomb. He was stalky not skinny like the Old English Game. I would like to buy another one if I could find out what breed.
Have you tried looking a chicken spreadsheets or even browsing hatcheries? Maybe they will have something.
I would say he is a - duckwing welsummer- because of his chubby look, his yellow shanks, and probably the hen on the back, this breed was created by crossing a golden duckwing game and a welsummer. Anyway this breed is very rare. I hope it helped.
A silver duckwing welsummer also fits the picture, although it could also be a mixed breed because of the rosecomb.
I had a Black jersey Giant x Welsummer that looks EXACTLY like this.
Come, gold n all.x
