    Here is a little bantam I picked up at auction she was just listed as a bantam Can anyone identify her as a particular breed or is she just a crossbreed,She has a somewhat gypsy fave pea combed and slate coloured legs and feet she does have a tinge of yellow to the soles of her feet and she also has a few pale dun feathers in her tail and wing,I thought she looked like a sumatra but dont have any others to compare Thanks folks[​IMG][​IMG]
     
  2. it does look like a sumatra, but justto be sure, could you get some clear pictures of the comb?

    I think you have a mix there. She is pretty, but the body type is all wrong for a Sumatra.
