    It looks like an Old English Game Bantam to me.

    He could be an Old English Game bantam mix.

    Thanks so much!! He IS a beautiful roo, hints why we bought him. I didn't care if he was mix or pure I just thought he'd look real hansome out in the yard. We were thinking he's just a mix. We looked all over and couldn't find anything that really matched him. We have OE game bantams and he looks nothing like them, plus he's just a bit bigger than eveyone else.

    But thanks so much for your help!!
