    She doesn't look like a bantam to me, but I've been wrong before.

    She is a little large for a bantam of her shape, but quite small too be large fowl also. She is probably a mutt between some bantam and standard size chickens.

    Would it be okay to put bantams with her? She is REALLY sweet.

    She looks like a "runt" Large Fowl. You can put her in with your Bantams. [​IMG]

    I don't think she is a bantam, but she seems to be built like a Mediterranean breed. Possibly a Splash Andalusian? (not my pic)
