    I thought that initially but someone said she was too small? We've just taken her in this week because no one wanted her!

    She does seem a bit small to be a Minorca, but this leads me to believe that she may be a Minorca Bantam. Has she laid any eggs yet? Minorca's should lay white eggs.

    she's not laid yet, she's only been here a couple of days, but I'll look out for white eggs. She's about the same size as a standard silkie, she's looks petite next to the marans. She's supposedly a year old and that's all we know about her, someone said she looked like a Dutch bantam but she's looks too long legged... thanks for replying!!

    Probably a Minorca bantam or Black Andalusian bantam.

    Ohio!
    You're welcome! I'm glad to help. :) It's possible that she's a Dutch Bantam, but she doesn't have those oversized wings that they have.....either way, she's a very pretty girl!
