    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering if anyone can help me figure out this rooster's breed?
    This is my uncle's rooster but I was recently given a hen of this same breed. They have a nickname around here but I don't know the actual name of the breed. They are very small and have a gamey look.

    Thanks for the reply, that's what I was leaning to as well :)
    My pullet is an all black and I should be picking up a little tri chick tomorrow.

    ETA: BTW, what would this rooster's coloration be called?

    I say he's a mutt.

    His color doesn't fit for Birchen nor Silver Duckwing or Penciled, he looks like a pale Golden cross to me. His earlobes are white but with red in them, possibly either poor quality Dutch or a mutt, and his squirrel tail makes me think he's a mutt.

    He's adorable! He looks like a cross breed to me, probably Dutch and OEGB, maybe some Serama? He looks pretty tiny!
