    This girl is about 5 months old now! And usually I can tell what they're going to be but... what is this?? She was shipped from McMurray Hatchery as the free exotic chick in a shipment of banties, and with her size she is definitely a banty. She is clean legged and when she first arrived I thought she was gonna end up being a black Japanese banty. She does have ticking around her neck, as you can see in the photo. It's almost a gold color but... definitely not as gold as my golden laced cochins. She's standing next to my full sized BLR Wyandotte hen so you can see her size. She hangs around my Sumatras and fits right in :)

    I almost wanna say she has a pea comb because it is so tiny and close to her head - like my Sumatras.

    Well then she might just be a hatchery quality Sumatra bantam. I'm not really seeing any breed here in particular, so its possible she could just be a mix

    Well, whatever she is, my Sumatra rooster loves her. His Sumatra hens both have chicks right now and hate him, and she is the only one he hangs out with now. :p
