    I'm sure he's a mix but is there any way to guess the breeds used? He does have 5 toes so that means a little doesn't it?

    Is he on the small side? With that funky comb and 5 toes I would guess he has silkie in him somewhere, and maybe Old English game.

    Yes he is quite small! A friend thought he looked like a partridge even! I have another young roo who is way bigger (red sex link). I'm not sure how old this guy is.

    I'd second the silkie/game mix.
