    What breed is this? Can anyone tell me, please? Bantam or standard?
    Five month old pullet (also).

    Looks like a bantam mutt of some kind, honestly. The color doesn't match any standardized color of any breed.

    Well, not that we always end up with what we think we are buying.. but each of these is supposed to be a pure bred "rare breed".. not that I mind.. she beautiful anyway..

    Here is one more picture of her if it helps, I wish I had a close up of her, but I don't, sorry.

    Not laying yet... five months old.. she is "cackling" a lot these days... ??
    You know we are rarely sure of sex until they crow or lay, LOL.

    Hoping "she" is a pullet, don't need another roo... but, if "she" is a "he", would be a pretty roo.

    She is about the same size, and carries herself the same way as the Sicilian Buttercup, just a little less "full" bodied.. carries and has a similar tail?

    Thank you.

    She's definitely a she. [​IMG]


    I see a rose comb type on her, she's probably supposed to be a Redcap, just (and no offense intended) a really, really poor quality one. She is pretty though.

    Whatever she is, she's gorgeous! Much prettier than the redcap pictures I've seen. Kind of looks like a buff brahma roo got into the redcap pen and you were the lucky winner. [​IMG]

    Hard to tell, for me, how big she will get.. she seems on the small size... Illia says Bantam... So... she is only five months old... she seems to have a "rose comb", very small comb, close to her head, more flat than the other "rose combed" chickens I have.. and, her comb has a bit of a point toward the back, still flat, but comes to a point in the rear?
    I am glad she is a "she", a pullet... and, I don't mind if she is a mix.. she's beautiful. And, thank you for the compliments on her...

    The one thing is that when I bought the four "rare breeds"; each of the four types of / breeds of chicks they had were IDENTICAL.. four distinct breeds -- so.. she looks exactly like all the other chicks of her type/breed in the "collection"... I was able to clearly and easily ask for ONE OF EACH TYPE / BREED of the four "rare breed pullets" in the cage.

    So.. I am thinking she was not an accident.. unless the breeder intentionally mixed to create a new breed? Or a specific cross? I don't know. I am going to have to look up and familiarize myself with all the different types of combs to be sure about her comb... seems like a little different rose comb? Doesn't look like "chewed up bubble gum" as some do, it's more flat?

    Thank you all very, VERY much... I am learning a lot, and I appreciate it.
