    Hey all, Here are some pictures of a 23 week old roo that we have. I have no idea what breed he may be.. he has all white feathers ( they are kinda wispyy), and white legs. We have 3 others ( 1 hen and 2 roo's - that look exactly like him, but much smaller.. not sure what breed they are either)

    Looks like a white Japanese Bantam with his squirrel tail.

    hmm, i looked up that breed. I can see the similarities for sure. But maybe the pictures are mis-leading. His tail doesn't have quite the same appearance as the Japanese Bantys

    Hmm.. Possibly he is serama? Is he tiny? It is hard to tell without a side shot. Or old English Game?

    Between the two, I want to say I'm leaning toward OEG, just because of how he holds himself.

    OP, do you have any side shots of him?

    His leg color fits more with OEG as Jap and Serama have yellow legs.

    No , I dont have any side shots because he is always trying to peck at the camera! I can try and get one tomorrow though... He is large compared to all the chickens in the pen he is in (Icelandics) because they are more banty size. But he would be smaller/ similar height to my Light Sussex or Plymouth Barred Rocks.

    He's a tough one! Most white birds have yellow legs so there's a starting point. Possibly his friends will give more clues.

    If he seems likes the size of a standard or large breed, he could be white Orphington. Their legs can be white. My Buff Orphington is from the hatchery and she has white legs.
