    A friend of mine gave me this little bird. I think she might be a Mille Fleur mix and maybe something like OEGB?

    No, there are a few feathers on the shanks, but she is a tiny bird and a really flat comb. She has long legs and is a thin built bird. It's hard to get a good pic of her because out in the yard, she is in the tall weeds. She also has this growly cluck. I've never heard her make a normal chicken sound. She scared the kids when I got her, they thought there was an animal in the bushes about to eat them! [​IMG]

    You may be right about the cross- if you use Henk's chicken calculator- Mille Fleur x white gives you incomplete buff columbian.

    Quote:That would make sense. If I had been able to get a picture of her standing up, you'd see that she is petite and skinny. She's fluffed up because it's miserable and rainy outside. My friend said she thought the guy she got her from had Mille Fleurs, and a mix of other game birds.

    So I guess she is either a Mille Fleur or Buff Brahma/Game bird cross. I can't remember what color her legs are.

    She's a cute little bird. She hangs out with the babies because the other chickens are too big. I love how she walks around growling all the time. [​IMG] I wonder when she lays eggs if she's going to finally sound like a chicken, or just growl the egg song??? [​IMG]

    Thanks!
