    Well, since we found Lily in our yard last month, she has grown quite a bit! She started clucking over the weekend. [​IMG] I'm posting new pics in the hopes that she may be more easily identifiable now. Her tail feathers have gotten quite long and she holds them straight up most of the time. Also, her legs are green. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks! Just out of curiosity, do all chicken's faces and combs turn red? If so, when?

    All the hens I have ever seen get red combs when they mature and begin laying eggs. Except for silkies, because they have black skin.

    She sure looks like a little sweetie of a chicken.

    Look up silver duckwing old english game bantams. That is what pops into my mind when I see your little girl.

    I have 3 ameraucana bantams and they have the same appearance as yours...just different color. I think its an EE bantam.

    here are a few pics for you to compare. These were hatched on july 4th. The tails do go up high like yours.
