    I have no idea what breed this little guy/girl might be. Got it from a hatchery choice Bantam straight run tub at our local feed store.
    Any ideas?
    Male/female?

  2. Looks like a splash something, a pullet I believe. Not a super clear pic.

    Any ideas as to breed? My daughter thinks a Cornish something or other....but I have no clue.
    It is a lavender/silver color & has a dark rust/red color coming in, too (those feathers have are edged w/the silver color). It's completely different than any thing else we got out of the tub.

    Maybe you can see the rust color I'm talking about?

    He's certainly a cockerel. What kind of comb does he have? Rose or pea comb?

    I'm not much of a bantam person but I agree male, and from that head and eye I could see something like a cornish or game fowl type--I don't think cornish come in any color like that, and I don't know about bantam game fowl, hope someone with more experience can help you out.........

    If it was a splash BLRW and a cockerel, it would have red wings....so I would say not so.
