Any guesses about the breed? I call this little guy "Napoleon". He has successfully driven a full sized fighting cock from my yard. He's not tall enough for all of his girlfriends, though. A friend at work is going to give me a few "table top" hens for him, though.

I'm guessing that "table top" is just a descriptor, like bantam. Any comment

Sassy Girl is hogging the camera but this shows Nappy's size.

He has a purple bar on his wings. His head/neck feathers (what do you call that) are slightly blonde. There is another one of these that visits my yard who's head/neck is almost white or silver.

"table-tops" are miniaturized fighting stock. often they could pass for old english bantams due to their small size. he could very well be an oeg. mini-pit games are sometimes called table-tops cause....welll......that was what they'd use as an arena.

Thanks for the replies. It makes sense that he's a fighting breed. Cock fighting is a big deal around here and some of my neighbors have stables. Nappy could definitely have a future as a fighter. He's calm around me and the hens, but if the big cock comes in the yard, he runs him off.

Table top fighters is something new to me. When I saw that mentioned, I was thinking bantam breeds like Seramas who are shown on tables and the judges want to see them exhibit the traditional stance for the breed.

vcomb was right lol although i never knew what breed they were. they look and act like miniature game birds. young kids will spar them (probably to imitate adults and illegal cock fighting).
