    I say it is a Welsummer Bantam.

    I'm thinking mixed breed. He's not a Red, they're a solid mahogany color without that black. His color isn't the same as a Wellie, but pretty close. The wing set is all wrong, though, he has these downswept wings where Wellies have higher, more horizontal wings. He's also got a very short back.

    I guess that could explain the difference in wing set and back length. The color's still not quite right, although I guess it could be a hatchery quality issue.
