    Yep, another TSC mystery bantam. She's got feathered feet and is a tiny thing. No extra toes, definitely not a silkie. Here's a body shot:

    And her very pretty feather colors:

    Thanks in advance!

    I was leaning that way, and maybe also towards lavender d'uccle, since her feathers are more 'blue' in person than they appear in the pictures.

    Looking at your guy's comb, it's not a brahma. Brahmas have pea combs :) Also, I have a buff brahma chick right now, and they are MUCH darker, even black in places. I'm really thinking d'uccle for my girl. In fact, I checked in at the D'uccle thread and they told me she was a porcelain d'uccle, so that's what I'm going with!

    This baby looks an awful lot like a buff Cochin to me. They are tiny, round babies. Sweetie pies too, I just picked up two black Cochin bantam and aside from color, they look just like your chick! Nikki
