I got this little rooster at an auction a while back. Paid $3. He's only about 6 or 8 inches tall. I got him because I felt bad for him they had him in a tiny little cage he couldent even stand up. I don't even know what breed he is for sure.

Rhode Island Red Bantam or myabe a New Hampshire Bantam - loaned all my books to a neighbour but there's a guess to start with.

I got a drastic change haircut yesterday, the stylist said, "Dang, I should have taken before and after pictures, this is cute!"

So, no pictures.

Looks like a N.H. rooster. Can't find any other brand that looks like it. Keeping it in that small cage certainly stunted his growth. His comb looks stunted. One of the main things that makes a rooster stand out from the crowd is their comb and tail feathers.

Addie he is a bantam - that is his full size. Also as they mature often their combs will flop over, at least on some breeds.

Word of warning Jon, I had a rooster very like him in colouring, very Kellog's perfect rooster picture. He was the devil incarnate! Would stalk you across the yard. Fight with anything he thought was male and/or not of the chicken breeding.
One tiime we were working on the fencing around the pens and we finally had to scoop him up (fishing nets work beautifully) and pen him inside. We just couldn't work with him sneaking up behind us every 5 minutes!
By the way, a very tasty stew -

BT, don't make the same mistake I did. FIRST you chop their head off, THEN you pluck them. Much easier!

And this little guy wanders through every once in a while, disappearing past my wood pile into the woods behind the house.
