    With the white earlobes he could be a Minorca or a Andalusian maybe?

    looks like a black old english bantam. if you can get a good picture with the tail and legs i can tell you more. the white earlobes are wrong for the breed, but its a common problem.

    Are the Dutch bantams the ones with white lobes? I don't know enough about their body types, etc to know if this is one....still trying to figure all the bantams out.

    Dutch is another one, he looks overdone for a OEG or Dutch to me but who knows, add black leghorn to the list with white earlobes, and long list of should be red but could be white and wrong.... better pictures would help but i think you are right, you are going to be left with "small black rooster".

    Looks like a mix to me. Body type does look right for a Dutch Bantam, and he should have pure red earlobes if he was an OEG.

    oeg's where crossed with seramas in the past couple of decades to make them smaller. there is some white bleed through in the earlobes from this cross. i would rule out leghorn as the earlobes arent procelain white. dutch is a good possibility.
