    Kinda hard to see in the picture, to tell for sure. I don't know of any true bantam breeds that come in that Columbian pattern, so I'm guessing a bantam version of a Columbian Plymouth Rock or Columbian Wyandotte.

    yes its the one in my picture.her tail feathers should be fuller. they are broken. She was in a very tight coop with her siblings when I found her. I am hoping her tail feathers will fill back out when she molts

    Looks like a possible bantam polish mix. Looks to have a bit of a crest.
