    Wow... so I got this hen I guess about a year and a half ago. My daughter named her Pinky. She is "MY" chicken [​IMG] We all love her very much and she is our special (sweet, sweet, sweet!) girl. We bought some chickens from a guy who also had a bunch of bantams and he gave her to us. I don't remember him telling me what breed she was, but I always just thought she was an OEGB. Well today, it suddenly hit me... is she a Sebright?? Or is she an OEGB? Here is a picture of her, and her mate, Johnny Cash. I got him this spring from someone else, I know that he is an OEGB.

    She's not a sebright since she is not a recognized variety and she is single-combed (sebrights have rose combs). She looks like an OEGB or a Dutch - can't tell for sure.
