    Oh i love this little guy. At least i think its a cockerel??? He's had the comb since i got him, but now it looks like he's growing wattles!!! And man can he run and fly! Holy cow!! What kind of Bantam do you all think he is? He doesnt have feathered feet.

    what do ya think???? i'm still new to this.

    It's hard to tell without a full picture. Looks a little like a birchen color.

    It depends on the breed. I had some hatch with combs that big (just not red for many more weeks) and ended up with 6 of 7 being hens. If my japanese bantams have a comb like that though they are always roos.
