    I don't have pictures, but he looks just like a Dutch bantam, but without the white ear lobes. Does anyone have some ideas of what breed he could be or what I could pull him off to be? Thanks everyone. I will post a pictures as soon as I get one! Also I have 2 hens that are Bantams or Bantam chicken crosses, but Don't know what they could be either. I will have pictures soon. Thanks!!![​IMG]

    He could be BB red bantam. (not my picture)

    Or maybe Wheaten? (not my picture either)

    Maybe even a Golden Duckwing? (obviously not my picture)

    But there's really no way to know until we can see pictures. [​IMG]

    If he looks just like a Dutch Bantam, but doesn't have white earlobes, he's almost certainly an Old English Game or Old English Game mix. Old English Game are fairly common and are often confused with Dutch Bantams. But, a picture would help confirm.

    This is Him. His name is Big Red. I will post the other 2 hens in a few minutes. It was already dark outside so I took them in the mudroom.

    This is Ricki my sisters bantam. She is about the same size as the rooster and maybe a little wider. She is bigger than My bantam who I will post next! Thanks everyone.

    This is Auburn my little Bantam. She is longer than Ricki. Build a little more like Big Red the rooster. Thanks again

    Well they definitely aren't pure OEGBs. [​IMG]I'm thinking all of your birds are the same breed. The hens definitely look like they have some Red sex-link in them. I'm guessing they are probably a mix between a RSL and a Wheaton or BB red OEGB. [​IMG]
    I hope someone else adds their input.

    Does anyone know if I would be able to pull him of as a breed or is he just going to have to be a pet or daddy to some chicks?

    I'm confused and concerned that you keep using the phrase "pull him off" as a specific breed. What do you mean by that? Are you going to try to pass him as a purebred bird somehow?

    No. I don't plan on showing really more of what I could call him. I buy purebreds as chicks to show. I got these three from up the road. I just wanted to know and wanted something to call him.
