    This chick was born 29 March 2010 at Townline hatchery and we're not quite sure what it is. When it was a chick it looked pretty clearly like an old english game bantam, perhaps a silver duckwing, but we don't really know. As it has aged it does not look like any chicken we can find. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    What kind of bantams do they have at townline? I looked them up, but when I clicked on bantams, I got pick of ducks, guineas, and turkeys, and way down at the bottom there was something saying bantam with a picture of the "Ameraucana"

    I think he looks like a Dutch bantam because of how small he was when you got him.

    Their site is sorely lacking and we've tried Emailing them also without much luck.

    We've gotten a silkie, along with golden and silver sebrights as well as Porcelein & Mille Fleur d'Uccles from them for sure. Other bantams we've gotten look like Old English Game bantams to us but we aren't positive.

    That looks just like Tiny!!!! Now I think I have a pretty good idea of tiny will look like when older, tytyty. I got Tiny from TSC as their teenybopper sales clerks had no clue what to do and he/she was so small I was worried they would kill it. Mt Healthy Hatchery has no clue what Tiny is (you would think they would at least know what they are selling). I posted pics of Tiny on another what kinda bantam thread in this forum if you want to check it out.

    Still looks like an OEGB to me, just an unusual color. Not sure what to call that color! I'm sure an OEGB expert will be able to pinpoint what it is.

    Not silver quill, too much brown. I don't know what it is. It almost looks like a Silver duckwing mix...

    Hmmm... I just noticed that she has a solid black tail. Maybe not a silver quill after all.

    I agree with Blackbird, could be a mix.
