    Picked up a few different breeds of chickens from my local feed store. Several were not what I asked for including this little chicky. She is much smaller than all the chicks her age so I'm thinking bantam something but I've no clue what. Opinions greatly appreciated. :) She is approx. 12 weeks old and shown next to a barred rock same age. Thanks for looking.[​IMG][​IMG]

    She is small but I think she could be a red Chantecler. Her comb is very small, and could very well be a cushion comb (hard to tell from the pics). She has the yellow legs and right coloring.

    I wonder if your barred rock is a Dominique though. Rocks have single combs, Doms have rose combs.

    She's not a bantam, I'd say she is probably a Red Chantecler, Ideal Poultry has them.
