    I'm picking up a new cock next week (pet not breeding!) for my girlies, just wondering what you think of his picture - I'm not sure which he is?!? I'm leaning more towards jap but I'm really not sure :)

    Extra info.. Apparently he was settling down and this is a very odd picture of him (which helps..... Lol....)

    Possibly a leghorn. Not the best pic, but I'm sure the girls will be happy.

    Boy it's hard to tell from that one photo, but my first guess is Serama. Could be a White Jap. I'm not as familiar with Bantams and really,really not familiar with English strains but you said guesses welcome! How big is he?

    I'm not sure! Apparently quite tiny. He's 16 weeks old in that picture and he hasn't taken any more [​IMG] I'm happy with either breed, I'm just intrigued by him. He's only coming to live with my little girls as the only boy and never be breeding so he'll just be spoilt here [​IMG]

    -does look like a Japanese bantam a bit. We have a tiny li'l Japanese bantam hen that looks quite similar.
