    He could either be Red Jungle Fowl or a BB Red Phoenix bantam. :) I'd rule the latter out if he's old enough to have grown in that lovely tail.

    Tough to say without knowing where he came from. The legs are slate, so that excludes Leghorn, but he could be a Leghorn cross. He could also be a Dutch bantam cross or Phoenix cross.
