    Hi, meet 2Pec! She is 5 or 6 months old now. We received her from my partner's Mexican coworkers, and due to a language barrier, all we know is that she is indeed a chicken. She's quite wild compared to the others, but she's so quirky and adorable. She is tiny compared to the others and barely has a comb. This bird can fly across the whole yard. She has yet to lay me an egg, but she's so cute I don't mind. Any idea of what breed she may be? I posted on Reddit a while back and the only answer I got is that she may be a red junglefowl cross.


    (Watch til the end! You won't be disappointed.)

    Oh my God that is her! I've only had chickens for 6 months, and this mystery has been going on the whole time. I've searched and searched to no avail, but your answer seems so simple - like I should have known all along. . Thanks for your help!

    You're welcome. It's just experience that makes it simple. In time, it will be simple for you, too.

    Would you say she is a bantam, or does this breed just run small? She is much smaller than my "regular" chickens.

    They run small. She is the typical size for the large fowl version. The bantam versions are much smaller and much rarer.
