    I have just rescued this chicken from being euthanized, but I was wondering what breed she is. She is absolutely beautiful, but a bit timid and pecky. Does anyone know which breed she is/can tell me some breed characteristics?[​IMG] She is a very small bantam, and I believe she is only four months old. Any guesses?

    She looks like a black tailed buff Japanese bantam, or a mix of one.

    Pretty though, and good on you for saving her.

    Im honestly not sure. She was found/brought into a shelter, and I guess she was probably overdue on her stay:/

    O. I hate when shelters put animals to sleep, becuase they have used up there 8 days or how ever long they get to stay. Eventually someone will want them. How awesome that you saved her!

    I think she looks like a game hen.
