    Hi all,

    My Mom found a chicken in her yard,and we can't find owners for it. I think it's a young pullet, but, maybe it's a bantam? It's light as a feather and definitely underweight plus has lice (yes, it's quarantined and being treated). Any guesses as to what I have here? Thanks! [​IMG]

    You have a pullet. As for the breed, I think that it's highly likely that you have a mixed breed. Could have some game bird in her, resulting in the smaller size.

    Definitely a pullet. As for breed, she looks like a possible gamebird mix.

    Well, she could have lice or mites.

    Her color is splash... so thats a start. Looks to have a single comb and green legs. Most likely a mix. With the carry in her tail, she definitely has some game bird in there.
