    This little bantam came from the assorted bantam bin at TSC. I picked her out because I was trying to get a Gold Sebright and knew they had rose combs. The other ones with the same coloring either turned out to be roos or had a single comb, so I sold them. I am assuming this one is a she because the comb is still really small. She is feathering out totalling different than the Gold Sebrights did. Anyone know what she might be? I tried looking up bantams on several hatchery sites, but nothing they sell seems to match her. Could she just be a really poorly laced Sebright or maybe something else?


    She looks bigger than she really is in the pics. She's bigger than my White Jap chick, but much skinnier and lighter than my standard chicks. She is about 4-5 weeks old.

    Thanks for looking [​IMG]

    Hmm, well that would be ok, as long as she turns out to be a girl. I was just really stumped by the coloring.

    Guess I will wait til she is fully feathered in and repost some pics. Maybe we can decide for sure if she is definitely a Gold Sebright.

    She looks like my EE's when they were young.

    So I would say that she is what the hatcheries call an "Ameracauna" bantam. Pea comb-check. Strange colored legs-check. Color-check!
    EE bantam!

    I have 3 bantam EEs and her body and head shape is nothing like theirs. She is about half the size, much daintier. Somewhere between a Japanese and an OEGB chick. The EEs also have a flat comb, whereas this chick has the rose comb with the point at the top. Her legs are a slate blue color, where the EEs have greenish/yellow legs. I could be wrong, but I don't think she is an EE.
