    Breed of bantam?

    What breed do you guys think she is ( brown one)? I was thinking maybe a belgian because she's brown and sort of speckled wings? She has feathered feet too and seems like a good flyer (she flew from an object about a foot and a half or more away from me onto my arm once). She's about 2 weeks...
