    This is our little girl Nugget and we believe she is just starting to lay eggs! We have gotten 5 so far and they are light brown! She is about 5 months old and is smaller than the others we have, so thinking she may be some type of bantam! [​IMG]

    I am thinking Cochin or Cochin mix. The feathering on her feet seems a little reduced, making me think mix but I could be wrong. She looks too big to be a bantum to me, I am looking on my phone. Edit: bantam.

    I'd say she is mostly Cochin bantam, but with such sparse leg feathering I suspect there she is a cross as well.

    Hey annerss03

    I am definitely not an expert when it comes to breeds of chickens and/or mixes but having a bantam Langshan myself, I am wondering, with the feathered outer toe, could she have some Langshan in her?

    Shape is wrong for Langshan, and they aren't available in bantam sized. Plus, their extended black coloring is very dominant. The bird in question is likely a Cochin mix. With the way she holds her wings, I suspect some Old English Game influence.

    Hey junebuggena Cool, it was just a thought [​IMG]

    When you said they are "not available in bantam sized" I am thinking, hang on, I have one! LOL

    But, being in Aus, research indicates that I have a bantam Australian Langshan as opposed to their Croad cousins. The feathered outer toe and tail could fit with a mix with bantam Australian Langshan but yeah, the chances of that, if not in Aus, are very slim [​IMG]

    I could see her being a Cochin mix, or a hatchery Cochin. Either way, she's likely to go broody for you this spring, if you're so inclined to hatch chicks.

    Thank everyone! She was the only one that I didn't write down what the breeder thought she was as a chick!! The breeder had soo many types breeds there is a very high chance she is mixed with something so that's def why I couldn't figure it out!! Thanks everyone!
