    My daughter picked this guy up as a chick at a feed store. All we knew was he/she was a bantam. I think it is safe to say at 4 mos he is a rooster, Can anyone tell me what type of Bantam he is?

    Looks like a silver laced Cochin.

    That is what I was thinking... just does not seem to have as much white as some of the pictures I have found.

    Thank you! Now to decide if I can keep him. I really want to, have cranky neighbors hoping he isn't too loud. However I laugh at that because our hens are really really noisy... can a rooster be any louder?
