    I got this little girl from my mom who got her from a farmer, she told me she honestly doesn't know what bantam she is, we know she is mixed and I was curious as to what she is mixed with, she is hard to get good pics; I have labeled her for now as one of my barnyard 'mutts' [​IMG]

    I have found everyone here very helpful and kind in all my questions. [​IMG]

    Again all of you have been very helpful!

    So she could be a Crested Bantam Leghorn with a really red face [​IMG]

    and if possible some guinea too?? why I asked is cause someone thought I had a guinea in my yard but all that racket was coming from her!

    She looks like she has some Silkie in her. That little poufy head is a telltale sign. Had three sisters with that little pouf. Could have been Polish, though, rather Silkie. Other than that, no idea.

    She seems to have some cornish in her? Maybe a little polish to give that crest? Very interesting little bird and she is super cute!

    Thank you, we adore her and her antics [​IMG] I love that little poof on her head, she looks like she is wearing a little hat [​IMG]

    So she could be a cross between silkie/polish/cornish

    She looks really mad in this one, I was trying to get her posture, she is so pretty when she stands and has her tail up

    And her egg the last one, whitish/cream color

    Looks to me to have Leghorn in her (long thin body). Maybe a leghorn/polish cross?

    That is a Sarah Palin hen sporting her bump-it hairdo. [​IMG]

    She is probably a LeghornXWhite Polish cross, but there is a small chance she is an Icelandic(I say small because they are so rare)

    I would guess leghorn x silkie

    I don't see a single trait besides the crest that suggests she has any Silkie in her. The crest could have come from a number of other crested birds
