    Just got this little girl yesterday, no idea of what she could be mixed with or how old she is...

    Any ideas?

    Her skin and shanks/feet are very white, the camera didn't capture her colors very well thanks to the flash [​IMG]

    She's small but feisty! Wants to fight everyone, yikes!

    Some of my sebright crosses came out with that feather pattern but the tail seems a bit longer than normal sebright hens.

    Quote:That would be my guess, too. Although, depending on the age, you might have a "he" there instead of a "she." My hens were pretty late developing their combs, but my little roo....

    Might also be considered spangled by some. I am confident that is a female. My guess, she should be or is really close to laying.

    She is definitely a female, that much I know for sure.

    I would have had all the information on her yesterday when I went to pick her up but if you saw the below thread, you'd understand why I didn't ask any questions at the time... [​IMG]

    Pixie holds her big tail way up high, she's very confident and confrontational with dominant birds.

    She's in a separate pen with my little 10-week old brahma pullet, they pretty much ignore each other.

    Looking forward to hearing more opinions on what she is! [​IMG]

    Wow, I can only imagine. After reading that post, I would say that there is a possibility of her being a jap cross, but it would be down the line a ways, as she has white skin and shanks.

    Any chance she might be an OEGB?

    Or a mutt?

    She's quite aggressive with the other birds both male and female (she's fence fighting!), she's very small and has beautiful thick silky feathering.

    No eggs yet, she only arrived last night and I don't know her age...

    Yeah, OEGB was my original guess. PS, I hope all turns out well for your friend and his family!
