    I figured it was a guesstimation. The one that lady has is a buttercup though for sure. I have rosecomb and the comb is much different. Not as wide at the base and more texture, not smooth and neat. The one in the pic is obviously dubbed but the station tells it all.

    @Caseymacom, the hen you have looks exactly like my first hen ever, Daisy, a roundhead. I can't wait until those little babies grow up so we can see. My grandpa always called those rose combed bantams. I can't tell how big he is.
    @Whitneyfroust he looks even more like what my grandpa called rose combed bantams with the white cheeks. He is just a cutie pie. (I'm a sucker for chickens with big ol white cheek pads.)

    Btw, if anyone has a wheaten or partriage hen in the eastern sc area, let me know. I'm not looking for pure lines, I'm just playing in the sandbox with these, and don't have what I want. I will give both of my grey stags away to get an affordable red game hen.

    I'm sure they will be beautiful. Papa had a lot of birds that looked like your rooster, most would come with white cheek, and wide tails with such pretty long sickle feathers. The bbreds would throw black hens.

    @Whitneyfroust, your roo looks pumpkiney (or maybe brownred?) to me. I had a clutch of accidental pumpkins from Daisy (roundhead) hen and some pumpkinish golden rooster that was smaller than any games I had, but much larger than the OEGB. He had station like a game rooster, but had the cheeks (his cheeks were smaller and only had a faint spot of white) and a comb like yours. For all I know, I coulda had a Spanish Game and never known it. I wish I still had pics of the parents and offspring, I was confused for a while about them. The cross had pea combs white stained earlobes and were either pumpkin or spangled.

    A friend of mine bred her bantam rose comb to one of my Hatch hens and it turned out pretty nice looking. A lot bigger than I expected.
