Figured it out: It's a White Wyandotte Bantam - PIC

    I have this bantam hen running around my coops that my husband insists came from Joel Gilmans farm last Spring. Joel gave him a couple of eggs from various coops, and we hatched out some weird stuff. .. so she's a true breed - whatever it is. I don't have a pic, but it's a pure white bantam hen.. I kinda thinks she resembles a leghorn - but doesn't have a single comb. And I *think* she's laying a white egg? Maybe not.. could be my D'anver hen.. but anyway - there were two of them, and we gave the other one away. Any idea what bantams match this description? I keep trying to catch her and get rid of her, but she's FAST! [​IMG]

    ETA: hmm.. is it possible to have a rose combed white leghorn bantam? I think she has yellow legs. It's likely a breeding quality bird, if anyone can use it. . . I just have to CATCH her. We gave the other one away.

    OK, - Here she is. So.. I was wrong about her being pure white. What is this?

    Could I see some pictures please?

    Does She have feathered feet?

    If not, she may be an Old English game

    Legs are clean and long. I'll try to get some pics tonight. Of the two we hatched, they were both pure white - no other feather colors found.

    She looks more like the first group- Old English

    What type of comb does she have?

    I just found out that Old English have single combs.

    Except Old English have single combs unless dubbed (like the pic) and if the op hatched them, she would know if she dubbed them or not.

    If she has a Rosecomb she's not Old English or Modern Game they have single combs..

    Leghorn do come Single and Rosecomb..

    It could be a very small single, but I'm thinking rose. I don't recall. It is not very big... I'll need to try to catch her tonight.

    DH insists it is a White Leghorn Bantam. Joel gave him the eggs because DH was interested in the mature pair he had for sale at the swap. Anyone want it?
