    I just got this rooster from a friend. He looks like a silver leghorn bantam to me but he doesn't have white ear lobes and some of his saddle feathers are cream colored. Does any one know if he is a pure breed or mixed. He has dried blood on his comb so that's why it looks dark.[​IMG][​IMG] He came with a female that looks just like a silver leghorn bantam.

    Not a silver leghorn, no. In addition to the ear lobe color being off the legs are also not the correct color for a silver leghorn.

    Agree, not a Leghorn. I can't see his shape that well from the pics, but best guess is some type of game cock.

    If the pullet he came with looks similar to the Silver Leghorn, and looks similar to him, I bet you may have a pair of Silver Duckwing OEGB.

    I agree with those who say game mix, not leghorn. if she came with him, very likely she is a game too. Games in come in virtually all colors possible and then some.

    I did some research and I think he's at least part silver or gold Dutch bantam. The hen looks like it to.
