    have no idea what she is. It is a stray that I am considering keeping. I wanted to make sure it was not a roo, ( even though I was pretty sure it wasn't) But I also wanted to try to figure out what breed or mix it could be. So you think it is a Bantam and not a young bird?? [​IMG]

    It sure is cute whatever it is! [​IMG]

    I had a hen similar to her. She was called a ginger red OEG Bantam. She is very nice. Conjrats.

    [​IMG] hmmm.. so another vote for bantam hen.... here I thought I had stumbled upon a baby... Well, she is very sweet, hopefully I will be able to introduce her into the flock...but I am now worried about her size... I was thinking that after the 1 month quarentine she would be bigger and therefore more able to defend herself in the pecking order.... I don't want her to get hurt. [​IMG]

    Rockabilly: Seems like everyone is leaning towards OEG type... I thought the same thing when I first saw her too. But then I thought...maybe she is just young...Let me go to the experts! [​IMG] so here we are... come on experts! who else votes for OEG bantam hen?
