    At first, I thought she was a Dutch.
    Now, I'm thinking maybe a Phoenix? Any ideas?

    She's roughly 18 weeks old. These are more recent photos.

    Where did you get her from? Do you consider her to be much smaller than your other birds (a bantam), or does she just seem to be a small-ish large-fowl? I'm leaning towards her being a Silver Phoenix, since she seems a little large to be a Dutch, and Dutch are rarer.

    Its a little too young to be entirely sure. Both breeds would look similar at this age.

    She is definitely a bantam. Much smaller than the rest of the ladies.
    I got her from Tractor Supply as an "assorted bantam".
    I fell in love with her cute little face and had to take her home... I've just been curious of her breed.
    Thanks!
