What breed is my chicken?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

I bought my chicken (Olive) as a chick almost four months ago, and i'm not sure what breed she is! She is quite small (around 25cm-ish?) and I think the breeder may have said she was a bantam something, but i'm not sure. 

She is not laying yet, and has a golden head and black body. Her crest looks sorta like a rooster, but she's not crowing either (there were 2 roosters in the same batch I bought, but they started crowing 2 months ago!)

I'm not entirely sure, but I'm curious, and this is how I'll find out wink.png

She's very pretty!

That looks very much like an old English game bantam to me!

She's very pretty! I'm thinking Old English Game mix since her body type is a little "chunky".

Looks like an Old English Game bantam mix to me, too. She's really cute! :)

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
