Banny Hen, What Variety?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

This is the strangest little chicken.  She is ultra tiny, though laying already so mature. When I go in the coop she hops up on my leg and stares me straight in the eyes.  She likes to pick at my hair, and taste my nail polish/shoes/fuzz off my coat. She loves to be pet, and never runs from me, but she'll bump chests with the bigger hens and tells them what to do.  She came from a purebred breeder who also does a lot of hatchery ordering/rare/unusual and normal breeds.  She is about 1/2 the size of my other chickens.  Any ideas?

Probably Old English Game. Maybe someone else will know for sure.

She looks a lot like my daughters banty hen Baby, but I don't know what variety Baby is exactly.

Could be a serama, they are tiny, come in any and all color combo's and can be super friendly. smile

She DOES look just like Baby! Wow!

Someone here suggested Nankin also, is that possible?

That is not a serama. Unless it is crossbred. I know seramas aren't an actual breed, but they can still be crossbred.
P.S.SangaChicken: A bantam is referring to a type of chicken. A variety is a type within the breed. I think you mean breed wink
