    Looks like a Old English Game hen, maybe Black Breasted Red. Not too familiar with bantams though so if I'm wrong someone let me know. She a pretty little thing though!

    I know next to nothing about identifying breed or sex, but I dub her "Adorablis Chickacutis" [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I agree, OEG hen, I have a bantum girl that looks just like this, she is dainty and is the LOUDEST little bird we have. She is definately all hen (the boys look very boyish, just as delicate but large combs, wattles, and crow). As to specifically what kind, I can't help so much. Pretty girl!\\

    edited to add - by loud I mean she talks all the time, has this almost crow that is really cute. when free ranging, just squawks up a storm, looks at us and talks constantly, looks at the other birds and talks constantly!

    Mine was from a batch of "mixed" the others were banty cochins. The batch was supposed to be araucana and cochin banties. I just assumed lol that they were as listed. [​IMG]
