    This is Miss Tiny, one of my chicks bought from Tractor Supply, she is about 7 weeks old. The only thing that was specified about her breed was that she was a bantam, which isn't particularly helpful since there are so many different bantam breeds. Anybody know what she is?

    :welcome

    she looks pretty big for a bantam that young, but maybe it's just the camera.

    I'm 70% sure it's a welsummer.

    I could be wrong but don't bantams usually have feathered feet and like stated yours looks large for age.

    only all-bantam breeds have feathered feet (like silkies)
     
  5. Crele Old English Game Bantam maybe. And there are lots of bantam breeds without feathered legs.

    it seems far too plump to be a old English game.
    however you could be right about the crele plumage

    I looked at her for a second and I think you're right! She looks very similar and after looking at some pictures of Welsummer pullets she looks about the right size for it too. Thanks for the help!

    Yeah, at 7 weeks she's already looking bigger than my laying OEGB pullet. This is Hawk, who is older now but still exactly 1 pound, and a regular size egg just for size comparison. Ms Tiny may not be so tiny after all, but she is very pretty.

    She might not turn out to be quite so tiny after all! Hawk is a very pretty chicken, by the way, her feathers are gorgeous.
