    I was told that this is an Ameraucana Banty... I can't find any pictures that look anything like her...

    Ideas on what she may be?

    I want to say she is an EE bantam... with for some suspicious posture of Japanese bantam mixed in.

    I was thinking EE just because of her feathering... She is a strange one!
    She was given to my daughter as a gift by the farmer I got my 2 RIR from.

    Are you thinking Japanese because her tail sticks up?

    He? This dose not strike me as a young bird and I dont see any saddle feathers, with out knowing more I would hesitate to sex the bird. However if I am correct about the age of the bird , 7months or older, it could very easily be a pullet based on that picture, IMHO.

    Quote:Maybe 7 weeks or older! I deffinately don't think she's 7 months or older, she would have red waddle.

    I thought it was a pullet too... But I agree, a bantam Easter Egger, some places that's synonomous with Ameracana... Not really sure about the legs, could just be the way he/she is standing.
