    I happened to be looking at the 6 bantams we have earlier today when I noticed that this one wasn't exactly like the other. I thought I had 2 silver sebright pullets, but is it me or is there hackle and saddle feathers on this one? I noticed that this one is a tad bit bigger than the other as well. This 'guy' is about 5 months old, but he isn't anything like my golden sebright roo. Mr. Peanut is hen feathered, but this one isn't. Also, I've known Mr. Peanut was a roo for months now and this one always had a pullet look until I was really watching them today. I couldn't get a good head shot, but it looks like a miniature sebright roo comb with the single pointed top. I've never heard a crow or attempt to crow and I've never actually seen any of my roos mate with this one either. So what does everyone think? And if you're in agreement then what breed is this one because it isn't following the sebright standard? Thanks.

    Darn, that's what I thought. I really had bad luck picking out those bantams.

    Any idea as to breed?
