    American game in my opinion, looks just like some of the ones i used to have, until the dogs killed them... and my last rooster died, then i gave my only hen to a friend

    EDIT, also if you want to decide if you think he is a Old english standard, a American game, or a sumatra, go look a few pictures between American game, and old english standards, decide which you like, also maybe watch him over the years and see how he acts, Sumatra.. look at his legs. if he has double. or even triple spurs. -Sumatra or has sumatra blood in him .
