    Last spring we bought a bunch of baby chicks and later found out the young associate that helped us did not get one single breed right that we asked for out of twenty six chicks. This one was supposed to be a quail. And a girl. We are not even sure what she is at this point! We love her dearly of course, but are very curious as to what she is. She is so very tiny. She fits in our hand. In one of the pictures you can get a feel for her size as she’s is standing near a lawnmower wheel.
    Thank you for your help.

    Well it surely isn’t a quail. LOL :gig

    Too bad more stores don’t hire someone that can at least tell bird species apart.

    Thank you so much. I never would have known. I haven’t heard of that breed at all. I did not know chickens could be so tiny! She is smaller than my bantams.

    Old English Game Bantams certainly are on the smaller side when it comes to bantams :)I agree that she's a beautiful Spangled OEGB!
