    My question is about this rooster. He is our only roo and he is about 4-5 months old. I got him when he was a week old. They said all they knew was that he is a bantam they were clueless on breeds. The parents were not on the property. Some of the other chicks from his clutch were frizzled. He has some lightly feathered feet. Do you have any ideas about his breed or mix? The bottom 2 pics he is next to my Old English Bantam hen for size comparison. Thanks

    Looks almost like a mix between Rhode Island Red, and Wyandotte.

    Looks like a mixed breed, probably with some Wyandotte in him.
