    Any ideas on what breed this roo might be? I'm thinking an asil bantam but not sure. Someone found him being chased by a dog and gave him to me. I've had him for about 6 months since June and has been crowing since I got him.[​IMG]

    I'm not an expert on game birds, so I can only come alongside with minimal knowledge, but I would go more Asil than Modern Game as it is too heavy for Modern Game.

    It's legs also look a bit heavy for Asel...does it have the ivory colored Asil eye? The photo doesn't appear to. I was wondering if it had Cornish Game in it as the legs look a bit thicker, but not thick enough nor broad enough to be full Cornish.

    Asil seems to fit it the closest...it may be a mixed breed of game which includes Asil.

    It looks like a White Laced Red Cornish bantam rooster.
