    Hello, I got this little guy in a mixed up bunch of chicks last summer. All the rest of my hens are full-sized and I have a full-sized rooster, and this banty rooster seems lonely. I want to find him a hen, but I'd like an idea of what to look for.

    He's small, maybe a 1/4 of the size of my Rhode Island Red rooster, his comb is very very bright red, his black feathers have a green irridescence to them.

    Now, I know basically nothing, but when i look at the images of the black old english game bantam, the comb is all wrong. mine is very ornate and large and he has a large hanging red thing under his beak that the black old english game has. ??

    thanks again!
