    She's small because she's a bantam. I can't quite tell you exactly what kind because she kind of reminds me of a dutch and a game...she's speckled/spangled...I can tell you that...lol

    Spangled Old English Game or a mix of that breed.

    Thanks for the replies, I'll post again when the chicks grow out a bit more. Maybe the males will have some more attributes to go on. She is a great little bird regardless of breed.

    She looks like a dutch bantam bedsides the speckles. She is probably a mix between a dutch bantam and something else.

    Here is a pic of my Dutch Bantam, Appropriately named Duchess.

    I'm sorry to say, this bird is not a Dutch Bantam. True, it has slate legs, but slate legs don't make a Dutch Bantam. Dutch should have white earlobes (this one has red earlobes). Body type isn't quite right either (tail too short, long legs). She's a pretty little bantam, but she isn't a Dutch Bantam. I think that she, like the other bird in this thread, is a Old English Game or Old English Game mix.

    That is clearly not a "wynnodott." I would have to agree with Wyandottes7 that she is Old English Game or Old English Game mix.
