    I don't recognize what he is at all. I like his sprinkling of dark on that light background though.

    Does he have the run of the house? He looks like he's completely comfortable being there.

    Is he bantam or standard sized? I assume bantam since he's looks so small. I would guess a mix, my first thought was columbian wyandotte with something else.

    It might be the pic but that comb looks pale. There might be something there to watch for.

    Any problems with it they sometimes look pale and sometimes purple in back.

    Ah, that first pic was when he was still not fully mature. That makes quite a difference.

    He sure looks like a sweetheart, I know that knowing the breed is something everyone wants to figure out about their chicken but honestly, if he's a good bird and a good friend, in the end, it doesn't matter :)

    I was just curious and wanted to learn thier lifespan so that I do not get any shocks.

    Most of the smaller breeds can live for many years as long as all of their nutritional and physical needs are met.

    completely understandable. You can expect an average of 6 - 8 yrs and 10 yrs is not unheard of (rare but it happens more than you think) depending of course on whether it's a bantam or a standard size as well as some breeds live longer than others but generally speaking, perfect health and nutrition etc, 6 - 8 yrs average. Free range birds that are not killed by predators tend to live longer than chickens kept in cages or small pens too. There are a lot of variables.

    Yep, many of my Silkies and Hamburgs made it to 8 years and beyond. The oldest was 14.

    yep, bantams tend to live longer, just like small dogs live longer than large dogs, it's just the way it is I guess. Who knows for sure why.

    That's what I think too. Less size to tote around so it's easier on all the inner workings.

    Thank you for the information!
    I just keep them in cage at night so it won't be a problem I think.
