    We came across this cutie of a hen at the petting zoo put on at our Easter Egg hunt. She's very tiny but I couldn't find her breed anywhere. Her small size made her an ideal choice as a breed to have for our smaller space _ could someone define her for me please?

    It's hard to tell from the pic, but I believe I sea a rose or pea comb. That would lead me to believe it's a bantam gold laced Wyandotte. If you are just starting out in chickens, you can also get a bantam gold laced Cochin. They're fluffy, small, cute, and super docile. Hatchery produced Wyandottes tend to be testy, imo.

    She wasn't mine, just one of the gals they had there at the petting zoo that I thought might make a nice addition, the rep didn't know either remarking "its just a chicken" *roll eyes* I thought it might be a sea-bright but wasn't terribly sure. The comb was just a small one. I went back to check my other photos, but they're all face on, no side views where it was more visible.

    Looks like a Golden Seabright to me. I have 2 but mine are still just chicks & are still feathering in. My Silver Seabright that is about 6-7 weeks older looks a lot like that except it's white where this one is gold.
