    This is Betsy, my new foundling chicken. I don't think she/he is fully grown though. She is very tiny but very sweet. I brought her inside to take pictures since it was dark outside.


    I am a tiny chicken.



    We surfed the web trying to see what type of chicken I am...

    If she's extra sweet and small I'd say Old English banty,color may be a cross of 2 varieties. The comb looks like my OEG girls,it's small and kinda spikey,here's 2 for example at 5-6mo.The tan one jumps on my back any time I bend down she's my favorite "honey girl". Bantam OEG are usually really sweet,from what I've read standard OEG are waay diffrent. Hope that helps U.

    I agree with the OEG possibility- but she looks really young. I bet she'll develop more and change color a bit.

    Thank you guys very much!
    I am absolutely in love with her. I have never seen a bird so sweet. She completely changed how I feel about birds. I didn't think she was fully grown so I got her the grow feed at the feed store. I'm glad I did.This site is so great and I've learned a lot.
