    I bought this little guy about 4-5 months ago and have been waiting for him to grow up. He is the sweetest little thing. He likes to ride around on my shoulder when I'm out in the coop and he his one of the first ones to greet me. He is tiny and his favorite girlfriend is almost twice his size. I haven't been able to figure out what he is. Would love to get him a couple of girlfriends his own size!!!

    He looks like a Old English Game Bantam. Not quite sure of the color though. If he was not so dark, I would say Black Tail Buff as the color, but he is pretty dark. What a cute little guy!!!!

    I was thinking that he was an OEG myself but his coloring and mostly his size is what was throwing me off. Thanks peepsnbunnies for your info and thank you both for your compliments.

    OEG Bantam... but almost looks like he could have a little Serama in him.

    Mahonri, I didn't even think of that. That could explain his small size. I bought them at the feed store and the guy told me they were "pure" but you never really know what your going to get. He just never really looked like the other ones and I was waiting until he got bigger to see if I could figure out what he was. I was just thinking that he was the runt of the bunch.

    Looks to me like he is possibly a Red Quill OEGB.
