    Might be a Speckled Sussex, or a spangled Old English Game.

    Is he small? The way his face is, almost looks like he is a bantam.

    I would say he is at least 4 months old due to his saddle feathers. I don't think he is all that mature looking so I'm pretty sure he's less than a year old. Spur length will give you some idea of age too.
