    Looks like an Old English Self Blue to me. Might be a Dutch. How big is he?

    He's like a standard bantam size, but he stands real tall. He doesn't have the earlobes like a Dutch.

    Looks like a poor quality modern game.

    How did you know just by the picture? He really can be a rotten boy when he wants to be. Too bulky for a Modern. I got him from Ideal in a mixed special, about 8 years ago. Not white, self blue.

    He could be a cross between a modern game and an OEGB. Do OEGB come in porclain? Maybe he has some of that in him. [​IMG]

    Dunno, supposed to be pure something, coming from a hatchery. Just haven't figured out what.

    Quote:I ordered some OEG bantams from the same hatchery this past winter and got some with crests. So, the hatcheries don't necessarily sell purebred birds nor are they necessarily a good representative of the breed if they are purebred. I would say he is a self blue Modern Game bantam (hatchery quality).
