    Hi I found a cockerel in my house today. Don't know how it ended up inside my house compound (suspect maybe it's trying to mate with my hen). Any idea what breed is this cockerel. IMG_20171218_114130.jpg

    Kind of looks like a bantam from the photo, but it's hard to tell. How big would you say he is?

    With the tail it could be a game rooster as well. Could you get a side shot.?

    Phoenix or a phoenix mix. Could also possibly be a game breed.
