    I may get this hen, but am unsure of what breed this is. It's definitely a bantam mix, but I don't know any more than that. Any ideas? Thanks! :)[​IMG]

    Well, it's a hen, that's a start [​IMG]

    Other than that, she's just a mixed breed hen. Looks to have some Polish maybe, something gave her that little crest. Could have been silkie, but so far back she lost the leg feathers and beard. Looking again I'm still leaning toward Polish mix.

    Welcome to the BYC!

    I agree with Donrae, she is a polish mix. Depending on what she is mixed with, she could lay a small/medium white or cream or tan egg.
