    Looks to be an Old English Game Bantam rooster but I'm not sure on the color.

    I'm going to go against conventional wisdom and say he's a young Golden Pheonix bantam...

    looks just like the guy on the right

    but his chest and blue shanks suggests a mix of gold campine?

    Either way, he's a pretty boy!

    He is a Pheonix Cross and the looks to be a Golden Duckwing/ Silver birchen cross...

    I say Pheonix Cross because Pheonix should have White Ear Lobs and Blue legs.

    (not a Old English Game Bantam, they would have a little smaller body, shorter tale and white legs)

    Quote:Right about the ear lobe & leg colour issues. Certainly a cross of some sort but with all the elements he's showing I'd say what cross is anybody's guess.

    Thank you for the feedback everyone. He is a bird that was dumped in a local park and taken to the veterinary clinic by wildlife officers. Now I can say a little bit about him when I send an email to the poultry club to see if anyone can provide a home for him.

    Thanks again!

    He's a cool looking bird whatever he is. Crosses are just a good as the others.[​IMG]
