    This little one flew into our garage. We have no idea where she came from. Seems to do ok with the 2 Rhode Island Reds that we have, but she does get picked on. She is about 1/3 the size of the Reds and hasn't laid any eggs. Thanks!![​IMG]

    Could be an Easter egged bantam, or just a young EE

    [​IMG] It appears that you have been 'gifted' an Easter Egger bantam. Get ready for some green or blue eggs.

    Yeah looks like a young EE. Might be a wait until she finally lays her first egg.

    I'm thinking more pullet than bantam, myself. A comb shot could help, but I know that can be a challenge with a found bird [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! I'm new at this, actually the chickens belong to my son and I know very little about them. I enjoy walking out to the coop every day and I am looking forward to learning more about them.:)
