    She feels like my standard LF Wyandotte hens body when I pick her up. She's a bantam but what? I'd like to order more of her this Spring.

    ks like a little red sex-link. Cute!
     
  3. Yep, a red sex-link. They call these birds all kinds of things.

    Although these are usually a cross of two types of chickens. You say yours is a Bantam. So this may be a bit harder to figure out.

    She kinda looks like she may be a blue laced red wyandotte with no lacing. Typical hatchery quality.
    1 because of body shape
    2 comb
    3 blue around tail and neck

    I agree with the poor quality of a blue laced red wyandotte.

    No no no- you can make a red sex link using a silver laced wyandotte hen. RIRs and SLW both come in bantam size. She's lovely.

    She was ordered from a hatchery as a bantam BLRW but was the only chick to survive, the others froze before arrival. I gave her CPR and warmed her up beneath my shirt, kept puffing air into her (mouth to head vs mouth to mouth). The same box of chicks had standard GLW chicks and all but one was also dead on arrival just as this little hen but the two were still limp, not stiff so the two survived. She lays nice eggs and has a nice meaty body to stay warm in our cold weather. I kept wanting to recreate more of her but so far the three chicks have long legs from the roo and a third of the body weight/mass is lost so I was wondering what I was doing trying to create her when I could reorder more of her if I knew what to ask for. Thanks:)

    (As stubborn as I am, I'm going to put her with my medium sized GLWx roo and see what those chicks end up like in the meantime.)
