    I have this "girl" Elsa that I thought was a EE, but now I'm not sure....
    Someone thinks that "she" might have D'uccle in her, but she's not a bantam.
    I really don't know.....her coloring reminds me of a Japanese Bantam.

    But, anyway.....this is Elsa.
    Her tail has gotten bigger. (she's standing like that because she was calling for her brother. She doesn't usually stand like that)

    Definitely a mix...but other than that, I can't tell you much! Could be some sort of feather-legged, non-bearded EE.

    You say she's not a bantam, but how big is she? She's not full size, I don't think.

    She's 5 weeks. Well a little over 5 weeks. The reason I know she's not a bantam is because I have a 14 week old Silkie and 3 other 14 LF chicks and I weighed my chicks at the same age and they were the same weight as my LF chicks not the Silkie.
    Here are some pics of her today.

    Here she is at 6 weeks! I think she's a pullet, but not sure.

    Only little tiny bumps where the spurs would be?

    Looks like a pullet to me. My guess would be that she's an Easter Egger mix with a feather legged bird.

    I think it looks more like she has cheek tufts than a beard, which would make her an EE still, but with an Araucana parent, not an Ameraucana. She has a single comb which leans towards her not laying blue tinted eggs, but you never know!

    She's 7 weeks now.
    Really flighty! Her and her "brother" both can FLY! They will fly as far as 10+ feet!

    She's 18 weeks old and definitely a pullet! Thanks for all your help!
