    I have a rooster that I've been trying to find out what breed he is. After some looking, I found a picture that is almost an EXACT match to the one I have. I would show the picture of my rooster but I think the picture shown is much better, much better camera.

    Is he a bantam? Could be a rose comb bantam. No matter what he is, he sure is a pretty roo. [​IMG]

    The bird pictured is a black breasted red game of some strain.

    I just looked at the picture more closely. Is that a single comb? If so, probably a Welsummer.

    I see Welsummer, but I'm no expert.

    No offense, but "almost an exact match" makes trying to id your bird from this pic useless. Something as small or insignificant seeming as a different comb, or leg color (which we can't see here) or a different body shape means a completely different breed. If you want to id your bird, you need to get a pic of him and post it. Profile shots of the bird standing naturally, including comb and legs are best.
