    I have a little Serama Pullet who is ABOUT 3-4 months old... She's tiny! Her brother who is 2 months younger then her is almost bigger then her!
    Anyways, I was wondering if there was a name for her color?
    IMO she's a beautiful color!!

    Here she is as a baby

    I think it's called "Mottled" when the color is like that. [​IMG]
    But she sure is a beauty! [​IMG]

    Thank you all who said she was beautiful! She's a dall!! She loves to be held! its sort of weird holding her and then holding my Silkies who are the same age as her if not younger and they are huge compaired to her! She is definitly the smallest bird I have!!

    She is the smallest breed of chicken in the world at the moment! She's a Serama!
    Only White Seramas are a reconized breed though..

    Look more closely and you will see an overly mottled Millie Fluer pattern, Congrats, find you a millie patterned Cockrell or cock bird and keep it going, just about everything about the pattern is recessive and can be duplicated fairly easily with a mottled, spangled, or better yet a Millie mate.
