    Still trying to positively ID this lovely little bantam. It is now 4 weeks old and still looking like a pullet, though never having this breed before I dont know that 100% for sure.

    Here she is at 2/3 weeks:

    I want to say yes, except I can't tell if it has muffed cheeks or not.

    Looks like probably a booted bantam. Very similar to d'uccle but without the beard. I ended up with a booted bantam and a d'uccle from TSC. Both are sweet birds, but both are roos. We are keeping the d'uccle. Here's a link that may help: http://www.belgianduccle.org/belgian-duccles.html

    She dosnt have any muffs or beard. Hadnt heard of a booted bantam will look into that breed. It dosnt matter any I just love that I have a lavender chicken lol.

    Thank you for the replies.

    many ppl think of them as the same, just like ameraucanas and EEs, but they are actually different breeds. :) I understand. Love their colors which is why we are keeping one of the roos. Would keep them both, but I have way too many roos as it is.

    I think banties develop combs faster that large fowl.

    If it is muffles than I would say booted bantam.
