    Does anyone know what breed this bantam chick is? Despite getting her at the same time as the others, he/she's a bit smaller/daintier than all the others.



    UPDATE: I'm adding a new picture of her, taken this morning, to see if that helps? She's still nearly half the size of all the other bantams!:

    My Red Pyle Old English Game Bantam chicks look similar to that, but I don't know for sure.

    Hmmmmmm,,,I'm stumped. I don't know what kind she is but she is absolutely precious! I love her colors and that little red comb is the cutest thing! I'm curious to know what she will look like as she grows. [email protected]

    I don't know the breed with those looong grey legs but I'd just about bet she's a he.

    I think he is what they call a Lemon Old English(Why I don't know, for I don't see the lemon). Not to be confused with the Lemon Blue Old English, for it is blue and has lemon feasthers on the neck and saddle. Your bird will basically be a white chicken with bluish-gray splotches about his entire body. I don't know why they didn't just call this variety a splash!

    My vote is for Modern Game cockerel. I've seen one recently-very similar.
