    Just curious to see what breed my 7 week old chick, Mouse, might be. Do you guys think she is a dutch? Also what color is she? Thanks

    Mouse is a cutiepie, she looks really tame!

    I would say she is actually a Ginger Red Old English Game Bantam (what a mouthful for a small bird!). Her lack of white earlobes disqualifies her to be a Dutch, and her color pattern isn't really found in the Dutch breed.

    Pretty girl!
