    This was when first hatched and dried:


    This is her now. Roughly 7 1/2 weeks old. She is very small-smaller than the Polish, same age. Dark legs.:

    She is like a small mourning dove. Very friendly- whatever kind she is. Everyone that looks at my chickens asks me, though, "Oh! What kind of bird is that little silver one?" and all I can do is go,
    "I dunno." [​IMG] One good thing- if ever I get busted and told that I cannot have my chickens, I can pretend she isnt a chicken.

    She looks kind of like a splash Old English game bantam. Soo cute. [​IMG]

    Looks like a Self Blue OEGB to me.

    Peacombed and dark in the face with dark legs. Blue Sumatra is my guess. that is a beautiful color of blue, too.

    Edited to add:

    How about a picture of the bottom of her feet? Sounds funny but I bet they are yellow.

    Its so funny- I had to go out and LOOK at her feet, because I had no idea. They are just a paler gray than her legs and the top of her feet- no yellow. She thought I was rather strange, tipping her over, though.

    Im not sure of the difference between a pea comb and a single comb- she has one ridge. Does that make it single?

    I'd say she's a self blue oegb.
