    Based on leg color I would think it's a bantam ee. It's cute!

    Cochins have single combs. If it's a silkie it will have 5 toes and black skin. hth!

    My vote is for an Old English Game Bantam - and most likely a Black Breasted Red because that color pattern is very popular with hatcheries and the chicks have that chipmunk look and straight combs. The biggest difference between the OEGB and EE is the EE will have the puffy cheeks and OEGB won't.

    Not sure, but if it was an Old English Game Bantam it should have white legs, considering its feather color. And it's feather color though blurry doesn't look like the standard B.B Red, or Silver Duckwing, ( There are many OEGB colors, but the two mentioned are the most common feed bin colors)

    E.E's are mutts that carry the blue egg gene they don't have to have a specific look. However, the pea comb, and beard are common.
