    I was just curious as to what breed you guys think Henri is. I am thinking she is an Old English Game Bantam.

    I know the Pictures are not that good but she is apparently camera shy.

    We really need better pics to make any sort of suggestions. We can't tell what the comb looks like, ear lobe color, head/beak shape, etc. How old is she?

    She has just started laying not to long ago. she has a short single comb,white ear lobes. Head and beak shape will get better pics if Her Royal Henri Chicken Highness will allow such a travesty to happen. Seriously she sees my phone and she runs.

    Kinda reminds me of a brown leghorn with the white earlobe, is it standard or bantam size?

    She is bantam sized and lays white eggs.

    Hmm, my initial thought was Dutch bantam but her build and leg color aren't quite right. Then I thought brown Leghorn but her feather color and leg color aren't quite right. Her leg color fits better for an Old English Game but still not quite the right build/carriage. I think I'm going to go back to my initial thought and say she's a hatchery quality Dutch.

    I think you may be correct. When i looked up a pic of the Dutch Bantam that is what I believe is Henri.
