    My neighbor was recently given a large batch of chickens from one of his customers.
    He told me she collected exotic and rare chickens but due to laws she had to find them new homes and he was happy to take them.
    However, this little guy has a big attitude and sharp spurs so he was then re-gifted to me!
    He's the smallest chicken I've ever seen in my life, so i assumed he's a dwarf of some sort?

    Any info would be appreciated! Also willing to upload more pics if necessary.

    Thanks!

    Second...probably and Old English Game Bantam....but I'm not that familiar with bantam breeds so it might be a different breed...but definitely bantam (that's your "dwarf" size chicken).

    Old English Game Bantam is definitely his shape (esp with the wings that seem to big for his body). Thanks!

    After looking around a bit his color seems to resemble closest to Red Pyle cross of some sort. Any idea?

    Yes, looks like a pretty Old English Game Bantam. He's definitely a mix of 2+ varieties, but I think that Red Pyle is one of them.
