    I went to pick up a 5 month old silkie pullet (hopefully) and the person selling the silkie told me how this one and the silkie were always together and sure enough when we went into the coop the silkie and this beautiful girl(?) were side by side off to one side, so of course I took both and now I need to know what she(he?) is? the person said when she ordered chicks this year this one was one of the 4 extra chicks she got so she wasn't sure but maybe a Mille Fleur (?on spelling) so anyone know? Feathered feet that are a light yellow red on the head, 5months old

    No visible comb. Just the pinkish area seen in the pic. But maybe she is younger then I was told? I dont know enough yet to tell. Such a newbie:)

    x2; but both LF & Bantams have pea combs. If she is around the same size as your Silkie (& the same age) then she is a bantam. A LF at 5 months would be substantially larger than the Silkie....

    Quote:LF is large fowl. Since she is smaller than the silkies I'd say she's definately a bantam dark brahma then, LF brahmas are huge. [​IMG]

    Thanks! She is a she then? That's good, I have no plans to be a breeder or anything but I already have a Silkie that I believe to be a cockerel that i plan on keeping as the only male in my motley crew.
