    This is my favorite little lady that we rescued from the SPCA in November. You can't see them very well in the picture, but she has a couple of feathers on her lower legs near the spur area.
    Any ideas?

    She looks like a Mille Fleur D'Uccle mix. Cute!

    It looks like a cross with a golden sebright.

    I went on feathersite.com and looked at the Seabright, Mille Fleur D'uccle and Campines. My lady looks a like she might have a little bit of each of these breeds in her.

    We don't know her age and as far as we know she has not laid any eggs yet. Is there a way to tell how old she is? Would she be considered a "Bantam" because she is so small? And what do you think her eggs would look like?

    Thanks for the info - I'm full of questions tonight...

    I'd say she's definitely a bantie, but I don't think she's got d'Uccle in her. Are there feathers on her feet? She has Sebright colors, but the pattern is mottled instead of laced. Maybe an OE mix? She's a cutie! I'm going to guess that her eggs will be white to cream colored. My hens just started laying, and they're about 6 months old. So I would guess that's a way to find the age!

    I'd say part D'Uccle, due to the color, body type, slight feathering on the legs and that it looks like she has a little bit of a beard. The other part, OEGB or Seabright!

    She looks to be a D'Uccle and Sebright cross. The partial lacing she shows is characteristic of the sebright. THe beard and feathering on the legs is characteristic of the D'Uccle.

    Very pretty bird though! I love sebrights. I used to have silver laced.

    I don't really see any d uccle in her...D Uccle hens have white (lots of it) and I don't see any white. Also, no feathering on the feet!
