    I can't find my other post, and she looks a little better now that she has settled and I took better pics of her... or him. I don't know that either.

    I got her from a lady that said she was from the bantam bin at TSC. She is as big as a 1-2 week old silkie chick and she herself should be around 1-2 weeks old.

    Thank you. Again, im saying "She" but I have no idea if its a pullet. Also what color is She/he? Also... it would be great!!! If you can post a picture of the chicken / chick you think she is so I can compare myself. Thanks!!!

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Same size as a two and a half week silkie chick. It is also the same age.


    I called Mt. healthy and the only thing it could be is what they call "Mille Fleur" Which to them is a breed. I told them yes, that is a color, but what breed is it she kept saying Bantam Mille Fleur.

    :( Really want to know...

    Thanks all. I will add a new pic tonight or tomorrow.

    I just am so stumped. [​IMG]

    It kinda looks like a bantam RIR, but... I called and they said no that wouldnt be in the assorted bantam bin.

    But hey.. she might suprise you!

    One that I was SURE was another *grumbles* black cochin from TS.... turned out to be a golden laced instead ;)

    I have one that looks just like yours, got her from TSC too. I was leaning towards a rir but if the hatchery doesn't have rir I'm excited to see what they will be!

    Aww, she is a pretty little baby!

    Thought I'd mention- you're right, Mille Fleur is a color. The bantam breed d'Uccle is commonly called a Mille Fleur. I suppose it's because Mille Fleur is a common color for d'Uccles. [​IMG] The person you were talking to was probably talking about a d'Uccle. However, d'Uccles have feathered feet- and your baby doesn't. I'm kind of stumped on her. x) But I am with 4-H Chicken Mom on the color- she looks like she'll be a Golden-laced something. :)

    Keep us posted! It'll be interesting to see what she is! :)
