    Are his legs slate colored? He could very well be a Egyptian Fayoumi. Look them up, they're so beautiful. I have a hen. She's very flighty, but she's nice

    try looking in the Breed section of BYC and compare it too breeds and see what you come up with to me it looks like a bantam so on the side of the screen there are options and scroll down and you will see bantam so click on that and good luck

    It definitely looks like an Egyptian Fayoumi rooster.

    in case you see a silver campine, they look extremely familiar to fayoumis. But the difference is campines are strictly barred body, white hackles and fayoumis have more white. Just a heads up!
