    I got a pm asking how she is doing so i figured its time for a update
    She is still extremly tiny, only 7-8 oz(Serama size)
    she has developed a beard which leads me to believe that her mom had a visitor, she was supposed to be a pure banty Cochin. She grew some feathers on her head but still no tail feathers(besides that one lone fluff thingy)
    I guess i will have to build a tractor soon since she can run through chainlink
    here she is on the drums before she fell off

    She looks good. Much better than the other pic I have seen. What breed is she? Very pretty colors.

    no tail feathers and a beard - could she be an Americana (that is misspelled) mix? Like an EE ??

    Quote:She has the tail thingy, just no feathers growing out of it. I dont care what she is i just keep here because she is a bit of a freak of nature.She has feathered feet like the cochins and if it helps any she came as a egg from a reputable ebay seller and her siblings all looked normal
