    Here she is... Take your best guess.

    She is suppose to be a bantam.

    I got this one as a trade for another standard chick I had. The woman said its a bantam from TSC. I called Mt. healthy and they told me the only bantams that come in the assorted order are Silver Seabrights, OEGB, Silkies and Mille fleur... which I thought was a color, not a breed.

    Sebright, OEGB and Silkie are different breeds, though Mille Fleur and Silver are varieties. I obviously don't see any silver on that chick! It could be a OEGB..

    I would lean toward OEG and, you are correct, mille fleur is a color. You'll find a lot of hatcheries will use Mille Fleur bantam or Porcelain bantam as the breed name when they really mean mille fleur D'Uccle or porcelain D'Uccle.
