    She or He is alleged to be a bantam ...and was nearly killed in transit from breeder to feedstore..the little blue cochin and this little Cricket were nursed back to health by the employee at the feedstore, and since I am known to purchase chicks there and have a spoiled flock and reputation for being a pansy for chickens they chose me to offer these two special chicks. (Which I am grateful for~Cuz I Love Em!) Little Cricket seems to have some reddish hairs coming through his or her downy feathers...all around her neck and chest. I tried to take a photo of this hair...but I am not able to get a clear pic of it. :( I'll post the best picture i got, which doesn't show much.) But does Anyone know what sort of Banty would have Black and White feathers with this reddish hair? [​IMG]
