    When my daughter brought my first original 12 up, this was one of the smaller ones. My daughter was told it was a bantam and at the time 6 months old, now she is 7 months.
    She was twice the size of the other three bantams but 1/2 the size of the Large Chickens (who are now 5 months old) She has feathers starting to grow on her feet, but nothing like the two Cochins I have. I have no clue what she is.

    This is Chickee Little
