    It's 1/3 the size of the heavy layers and rare breeds that I got in my assortment from MM. VERY skittish, in fact I'm about to enroll it in classes to help it with anxiety! I've spent hours online trying to figure out what it is.

    Here's a pic showing how much smaller it is than the Buttercup pullet that I got in the same shipment. Is there a chance it's a bantam? I can't find anything on their website that looks like this little spastic bird.

    I think you might have an Egyptian Fayoumi there. Below is what mine looked like as a day-old - now, they look a lot like yours.

    I think it must be an EF. It had that same coloring. She's a hyperactive, spazzy little creature.

    Yep! That's their temperament. [​IMG] I hear they are absolutely nuts.
