    I would like to upload a picture of my little rooster, but when I use the Img tag, only the text shows in the post preview. As you can probably tell - I am VERY new to forums and could use some basic help before going any further!! Any help is appreciated [​IMG]

    Well, thanks for trying, anyway! He is cute - and he comes when I call him - and funniest of all - he whistles like a song bird!

    He is a young bb red old english game bantam. The brown barring is because he hasn't molted out all his young chick feathers. He is a beautiful rooster!

    Thank you for the info! However, being new at this I'm still learning all of the acronyms. Can you tell me what BB stands for? I see that OEGM=Old English Game Bantam.
