    I think this is a bantam sultan (from what I can find on google)? I adopted her from the farm where I work and she was the oddball thrown into a shipment of white and black leghorns and black rose comb banties.
    She was born April 2008.
    She has a sweet temperament, lays lightly tinted eggs, and has little crest with cheek poofs and feathered feet.
    What would her color be called?

    It looks to me to be some kind of silkie cross. How many toes does she have?

    Five little toesies!! But sultans also have five toes...
    I thought silkie for a bit too but would a mix come from a breeder? I think we get ours at work from McMurray..

    Honestly I would still say mix as a sultan has the V-comb and that comb looks to be the walnut type comb.

    She is a Silkie cross. As for color she is probably the result of Buff crossed with some Partridge like pattern.

    Thanks guys for helping me out!!
    Her Silkie heritage would explain her sweetness and how she goes broody.
    I absolutely love her [​IMG]
