    I recently accquired this little banty rooster and was wondering what breed he is. I have him in his own tractor by himself. He was my grandfathers pet for the last couple years, so he has been alone for a while. I was thinking about heading up to the local auction and trying to find some hens to keep him company or possibly integrating him with my six silver laced wyandottes. Any ideas on what breed he is?

    I would call him a black breasted red ,could be game or old English cross. He would like your girls for sure.

    Looks like a Black Breasted Red Old English Game bantam to me.
