    Hello,

    Someone on another bird forum posted these pics of a bird that showed up on his property. He lives in Nevada and is trying to identify it. It easily flies and sits on his roof and roosts in the trees. Any ideas??

    I have no idea. But it certainly could be. Very pretty!

    It is some form of bantam surely.

    It is a chicken, it could very well be a bantam mutt, or a porclin. It looks like a porclin, but it doesn't have feathers on its feet, so it is probably a mutt.

    Looks like some sort of game mix.

    `WAY too long in the back to be a pure OEGshe's a cross of some sort.
    BTW-Porcelain is a color not a breed. As such some Porcelains would be feather legged ie:d'Uccles: some would be clean ledded ie: OEGB.
