    I bought this bantam as a chick and she was the only girl out of 5 boys. Her mom was dark Cornish bantam. This hen is about 1 year and 3 months lays light colored eggs and is very broody. She has already hatched 7 broods of chicks for a young age. She is very pretty. Almost some blue r gray in her.

    She looks so much like her dark cornish mom. It's tough to say what dad might've been.

    Thank you I've always thought maybe Wyandotte also bet she represents a Cornish abit to much for she is very short legged and stocky. I just don't know what her father could have been for her to get colored legs. ?

    Does she have a pea comb? It's hard to tell by the pictures. If so, she looks nearly purebred Cornish. If she has a rose comb, she is nearly purebred Wyandotte.

    Definitely has Dark Cornish blood, she shows it strong. But she isn't a purebred. Mutts can be tricky sometimes, but given the body, comb, and plumage I would make a (hazardous) guess as to her having some Blue Laced Red Wyandotte as well.

    she is very pretty regardless and very worthwhile as a broody

    Thanks everyone. And as for the comb it is even hard to tell in person. It is very small and smooth almost like there's nothing there.
