    Pretty boy! I have no idea what he is, but it may help if you state whether he's a standard or bantam. [​IMG]

    oh sorry, he is little, so some kind of bantam I guess, he is half the size of my other roos! his tail feathers point down toward the ground like a rumpless breed.

    I guess anything is possible! lol somebody mentioned a araucana mix at the auction. He's funny to watch, when he's out running around that tail drags points down all the time. maybe its a defect lol I always seem to get the odd balls

    Can you get a better side pic and maybe one straight on? What kind of comb does he have? I can't really tell from the photo.

    He MAY be an Araucana mix, but those aren't common.

    What does his comb look like? Does it have three defined rows of bumps?

    What color are his legs? slate gray? green?

    What color is his skin? yellow? white?

    He really looks like my clean faced bantam araucanas- except for that odd tail feather hanging down. They CAN be partially tail-less though. He might just be pure, but a non-standard due to being between rumpless and not rumpless. I have a hen like that.
