Sebright mix? Cochin mix? Serama mix?

    Got a new hen about 20 weeks old now. She's supposed to be a Cochin-Australorp mix, but she looks like a Serama or Sebright mix to me. She is two-thirds the size of my other chicks. Here's a picture:[​IMG] Could someone tell me their opinion? Thanks!

    She does not have the upright, chesty look of a well-bred Serama, she looks very horizontal. She also seems to have feathery feet, a characteristic of Cochins, both bantam and LF.

    What kind of comb does she have? She looks most like a bantam cochin mix to me.

    She has a rather flat pea comb, at least flatter than the other two, which are Ameracaunas.

    Then she could have Brahma in her. A Cochin/Australorp cross would have a single comb.

    She now lays small brown eggs. Does this help?
