    The farm and feed store told me that this one is a Banty Cochin. I have other Banty Cochins that I got from a breeder and she doesn't look anything like them. What breed is she? Thank You

    Does a speckled sussex have feathered legs? I didn't think so. Could she be a bantam Favorelle (if I spelled that right it's a miracle and a complete accident.) Except for the feathered legs she looks like my EE's. Clearly, I am no help.

    Quote:DUHH! That is pretty bad of me. I should have waited for the picture to load. Our internet is so slow I never saw its feet. I looked at the feathers and thought they matched perfectly. The feet pretty much rule that out. Sorry. Thank you for correcting me MissJenny!
