    Shes not a bantam but shes definately smaller than a standard bird.

    Shes full black with silver stripy - lace neck.

    I have a hen that almost looks identical, but my hen is a mix. Astraloup and [​IMG] I don't know what. The coloring is the same but mine is bearded like an EE.

    pure mongrel... but if you can find a standard bred frizzle roo, they can give you some good quality frizzles.

    I got some surprise special pullets from Ideal last year and have a hen that looks like this. They said she was an Iowa Blue, so maybe???????? [​IMG]

    She looks like what I would think a Birchen Rock would be. That's not a standard color here. She's nice and round like an Orp, but the legs are wrong.
