    Bug is one of seven chicks I got from the SR Bantam Bin at a local feed store that got them from Ideal. He/She is now over a month old and still super small.
    Do you think Bug's a Self Blue Dutch?

    He/She also has some black on the part of the comb closest to his/her beak.

    Could be but what did the down look like when it was still a fuzz ball.

    He's probably a Self Blue Old English Game, since Self Blue Dutch are rare.

    Ideal does have them, though. Not sure if they are pure or not.

    mine is the smallest of the 8 chicks I bought, but the most bossy of the bunch.

    I don't know much about that breed, but after looking at some pictures I would agree he is a Self Blue Old English Game chicken too. I just want to say that he is adorable too! :)

    I also don't want to cause any confusion either, in my post right before this I was calling Bug a "he" and I don't want you to think that Bug is for sure a rooster... I'm actually not sure of Bug's gender. My apologies.
