    He's a little banty of some sort. I'm not good with roos. Do you know what breed he is?

    Wouldn't the white earlobes indicate a Dutch bantam?

    too thick to be pure OEGB, looks cornish game mixed to OEGB to me, short thick legs, fat thick chest...obviously not pure to them , but but the build looks more cornish than anything else to me.

    Can bantam roos mate with LF hens easily? The reason I'm asking this is that I think this guy might be the dad of one of my mixes who came out of a large brown egg. As I look at her at 7 weeks, she holds her wings more on the verticle. He looks like he thinks he can do anything...like climb the highest hen! He could be mix; they have a crazy variety of birds there. He was the only bantam roo at the farm but there were some banty hens.

    My banty roos have no problem breeding with my LF hens. Have several babies of mixed heritage running around here to prove it. [​IMG]
