    She is definitely a bantam hen. I am thinking maybe she is a Cochin Calico but I am not sure. She has feathered legs and feet. I am referring to the larger hen in the pic. The chicks are a completely different breed from her. They are cubalayas and auburn sumatras that I gave to her to raise. I payed $25 for her because I really wanted a broody hen to raise these chicks. She has been an incredible mother.
