    this pic shows the size difference between (him) and an EE we picked up on the same day, he is much shorter and wants to hide under everyones wings.

    Kitty here is one of my SLWs as a chick...both of mine are hatchery girls, and not at all laced right. Yours there isn't quite the same, I am curious what it is though, hope you get an answer.

    Old English Game for sure, might be a bantam if s/he is that much smaller than the rest.

    we can see yellow legs... what color is the skin, and can you tell what kind of comb? that color pattern is so common it's hard to tell. did the bin give you any idea about egg color?

    It does not have a Wyandotte face so I am thinking SS as well.

    That's a definite possibility as well. We may not know until she feathers out :)
