    a friend of mine contacted me, telling me she had found a chicken in her yard and didnt know what to do with it, and of course i took it..
    but i don't really know what it is or even how old it is! my guess is about 12 weeks.

    she seems to be a little girl
    she's a bantam
    she's VERY soft and fluffy
    she's got five toes on each foot

    the five toes narrows it down, and i was thinking sultan, but her crest looks too small...
    i don't know, i've never raised sultans, so i may be very wrong.
    help me figure this out!

    I also think it's a Silkie x Cochin,
    aka Smooth Sizzle...A Sizzle is a Silkie Frizzle, They look odd as hell.
