    What do you suppose this is?

    Its about a year old.

    A barred rock bantam cross or a Dominique bantam cross? It is clean-legged and has a small muff and beard. They only had bantams in the pen.

    They had a millie, BBs and more like this one, only they had clean faces. Its so cute and small. lol

    Its a mystery to me as I have no idea what other bantams they had in that pen, lol. I'm pretty sure they never had standards in there. They were all so dang cute. [​IMG]

    Oh, roo or hen?

    Hey, that really does look like this tiny gal/guy!!! I remembered what the guy said now, these chickens haven't had babies yet so they probably aren't crosses. You think I really got a CM?? I always wanted one of those, LOL.

    Man I can just taste the picked eggs!!!

    Definitely a cross.. Not sure with what though. It would be bantam BR with something else. Legs are very pink.. Hmm.. That's tough..

    Hehe. Its a hen though, right? I took a chance because that cute little fluffy face! Its really sweet but scared of me. And SO fat. Man they must feed these guys candy, lol. I didn't see any EEs in there, hmm.

    My standard BR has pink legs as well. She could just be a bantam BR with bad leg colouring.

    I am pretty new at this, but I have two CMs and they sure look alot like that. I can never tell roo or hens for sure untill I hear cockle doodle do or see an egg [​IMG] Whatever it is a pretty bird.

    Ohh, I am so danged happy its a hen. I would have been happy with a roo too though. Oh man, I can't wait for tiny babies. He said they hadn't started laying yet. But they are around a year old? Think its because of a fatty diet? Hmm. Man I wanna go back and buy more. His chickens all looked so healthy and happy. Just a bit fat, hehe.
