I got a banty, but not sure what breed?

    I bought 4 chickens (hens) from a guy who raised most of them from chicks. I have 2 RIR, 1 Barred rock that are 4 months. But 1 is a banty and he wasn't sure how old or what breed. He'd had her for about a year and she lays tan or light brown eggs. Any guesses? I'm thinking either australop or pekin, but what do you guys think?

    An adorable little mutt is what she is! She was probably the end result of something crossed with a Silkie or Pekin/Cochin.
