    Greetings,
    This is my first flock. Can you tell me what breed my bantam rooster is? Here's some pics, he's about 4-5 months old. His black tail and wing feathers have an iridescent green sheen in the sun. Thanks very much!

    Looks like a Birchen Japanese bantam..I haven't ever heard of that color pattern in that breed though. Beautiful roo though! You should be proud.

    Birchen Japanese , Ive got a 5 month old myself, he's a good little roo my doesn't crow much and getting better looking all the time. His red face makes a nice contrast to the black and silver. My wife named him penn because he looked like a little penguin at first.
    Nice little roo youve got!

    Looks very Japanese to me. We've got 70 odd of them, Black Tailed Whites and Black Tailed Buffs. I'd say he's a Gray maybe with a little mix of some other color.
    Long legs too !
