    I got this bantam rooster with a couple of black breasted red Old English game hens. The guy I got him from said it was some kind of jungle fowl rooster but I don't think he knew what it was. Any ideas on the breed and age?[​IMG]

    I'm not really sure on breed...he might be mixed. How big are his spurs? The younger he is the smaller they are.

    That's some big spurs for such a little guy!! Definitely over a year, maybe even two or more. Could be wrong, that is just a guess.

    I agree, the Spurs are quite long. She is a beautiful little Bantam rooster that we call Captain Hook. I wish we knew which breed he was for sure.

    Yes, he is very pretty. Maybe someone else will know what he is, but I don't. Wish I could help more!
