    She looks like a black breasted red old English game Bantam! Very pretty pullet!

    She has lightly feathered legs, which is making me think she is an OEGB mix of some sort.

    Ah ha! Didn’t see the feathers! Agreed!
    Is it just me, or Dow sit seem like she has 5 toes?

    Edit: if those are 5 toes, then she is most likely part non-bearded Silkie!

    Yes, she does have five toes. Good eye! What a strange, but uniquely pretty bird.

    True, she is just showing more of the OEGB genetics.

    I think she is really a he. Those neck feathers and that tail and how it's holding its wings........ Also the large feet..... How old is your new bird?

    Not BBRed OEGB. Too light and too much variation in color for them. But definitely a OEGB silkie cross.

    Gorgeous Bird!
