thought serama, but oegb?

second pic is when it was a baby.
it is so very tiny. 9 weeks old. Much smaller than the oegb from the same batch.

It could just be a runt.  Or it could be a mix.  Hopefully you will know more as it matures - see whether it has the upright serama stance.  I have a hard time distinguishing between poor, pet quality seramas and oegb. 

 

I picked up some pullets that were being rehomed - they were supposed to be seramas.  With the exception of one size A girl, my own seramas are on the large side, with most being 14-20 (well fed) ounces.  But all four of the pullets I brought home make my seramas look fairly dainty in comparison.  So I think these girls must be mixed with something else...not sure whether oegb or Japanese???  My little serama roo seems to like them just fine, and I don't sell birds, so it's irrelevant to me. 

 

Anyhow...you may be able to tell more as she matures a bit more - she's a tiny cutie though!

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

Probably BBR OEGB.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

BBR stands for black breasted red. That is a tiny 9 week old. Adorable!
