    My wife has brought home a rescued roo...... I know it is a bantam but what breed is he. Might he be a mix? Any ideas or guesses? Thanks in advance!

    I'm thinking he is mixed by going off this one pic. because he has a 90 degree angled tail which you only find in Japanesse and sermas, but he has a lot of oegb in him as well.

    Nope, most breeds have an angle to their tale position less than 90 degrees. I have some japanese x old english game bantams and they are similar to yours.

    He is bent over. Get a pic of him when he is standing up normal and not trying to get away from you. Everyone here thinks his tail always goes straight up.
