    Could someone please tell me if this guy is an OEGB or a white faced Spanish? Don't think it's a rosecomb because it doesn't have a rosecomb! LOL He came from McMurrays Hatchery the week before Easter so he's about 5 1/2 months old. Thanks!!!

    I have a hen that I bought from ebay that was supposed to be a blue rosecomb, it is black with a single comb. Looks just like yours only it is a bantam.

    Becky - "Sir Gallahad" is a bantam, too! Rosecomb, my foot!

    I know Spanish have white faces but not until after the first year, or so I thought I'd read. Someone told me that OEGB's are supposed to have red earlobes but that poorer quality ones can have white ones. I'll post a couple more pictures in a minute.

    It could be Black Dutch Bantam COMB, FACE AND WATTLES: Bright Red
    BEAK: Dark bluish horn
    EYES: Brown
    EAR LOBES: Pure White
    SHANKS and TOES: Dark slaty blue

    BLACK PLUMAGE

    Color of Male and Female

    The quill and surface of every feather in all sections of the plumage, over the entire body, pure black. The head, hackle, back, saddle, sickles and wing bows of the male should have a rich beetle green sheen. The female should also show some brilliance of feather in the head, hackle, back, cushion and wind bows.
    UNDERCOLOR: dull black.

    Huh! I never thought of that!! I bet he is a Dutch. Here's another view of him. Unfortunately, I don't have a good view.
