    She is very pretty and I would like to get some more... but i don't know what she is. I was told by the people I bought her from that she came in a bantam purebred mix from Ideal if that helps and she is about 8-9 months old. Thank you very much!

    Much more sense! No idea WHAT that bird is though! lol!

    Um...here's some guesses:
    D'Uccle???

    I have a feeling she is more a mix than pure...but from the description....something happened in that hatchery that they maybe don't know about???

    She kind of looks like a Blue Orpington-crossed with something, but the feathery legs make her look like a Cochin or Langshan influence. I'm no expert though...

    To me it looks like a bantam brahma cross with maybe an orp, or does it have to be crosses with another bantam?
