    Looks like she is still very young..I am guessing around 12 weeks. She sure is beautiful! Reminds me of a brown leghorn pullet. If that is what she turns out to be her comb is going to get a lot bigger and she will even become more beautiful

    Whatever she is you are lucky..that is one beautiful bird.

    She is from this years hatch and was in a grab box of mixed??? I mow the grass at 3" and she is almost buried in the ruff. I truly do believe she will not get any bigger.

    Thank you for contacting My Pet Chicken! That's a very healthy little hen you have there. Her breed is called the "Old English Game Bantam" and her color is "Black Breasted Red" more commonly referred to as B.B. Red. She is a bantam, which is a miniature breed so judging by the photo she is close to being fully grown. Old English are wonderful little bantams to watch.
