    We got this gorgeous gal (nessie) from a lady who keeps a big cross breed area. I asked her what different breeds she has in there , but she came back saying there are too many to say! lol

    She did however say that all the boys are purebred and "some" of the hens are pure, however most of the hens are crosses themselves.

    She also said that nessie looked like she may have some bantam in her. She is about 10 weeks old now and after some research it looks to me she may have some Modern Game in her. Especially with the quite long legs and huge eyes in comparison with her head.

    And for size comparison, next to our 3 month old pekin cross frizzle hen.

    that's what I'd think. Modern game cross and looks bantam.
