    I got this in a McMurrays rainbox mix. She's 21 weeks. I posted pictures of her at 12 weeks and it was suggested by one poster that she was a bantam EE. I thought I would give it another try. Any ideas out there on what breed she might be? She is quite a bit smaller than the other pullets her age and she seems to be fiesty and braver than the others. she also seems to be showing some interest in the nest boxes this past week.

    BA or JG. What is the color of the bottom of her feet?

    Wouldn't a JG be bigger than the other chickens her age? She's quite a bit smaller. I'll check the bottom of her feet in the morning.

    No, they came in the same rainbox mix order but they are different birds. I thought the other one might be an australorp but now it seems to have white earlobes. This chicken is considerably smaller and has pink earlobes and a much smaller comb, possibly a pea comb.

    She is not an EE, she has a straight comb but it hasn't developed yet. EE's typically have beards, muffs, green legs and pea combs. She does not have any of those. I am not sure what breed she is though.

    Looks like my black australorps ... same comb, and even facial features. No tufts around face. Possibly they crossed a black australorp with a small something, or it's just a runt b.a.
