    Bought this bantam hen at a local feed store yesterday. She has puffy cheeks and a rosecomb. Her feet are not feathered at all. Any idea what breed she is? Thanks so much!

    Northern Ohio,
    I'm no expert but it looks like a Mille Fleur Bearded d'Uccle to me.

    I agree that there is d'uccle in her/him. But it is surely a mix because it has clean legs. To me with the cheeks it looks like there could be bantam easter egger and d'uccle mix.

    She's probably a D'Uccle mix. She could be a Belgian Bearded D'Uccle/Belgian Bearded D'Anvers mix, which would explain the rose comb. Or, she could have another rose comb breed like Wyandotte in her.

    Thank Y'all so much! I'm a fairly newbie to chickens. I fell in love with her and had to bring her home. I was just curious what she was. Thanks again!
