I've searched the archives but the closest match I've found is:

However, my hen doesn't have any leg feathering at all.

I've gone blue in the face trying to figure it out.


Here's her picture:

gamebirdsonly: I did some reading on the Dutch Bantams - as far as the earlobe, here's a closeup of her head:

She was a little flighty when we found her, but she now comes over to us if we call her, and when we approach her, she hunches down a little, puffs out her wings, and waits to be picked up. She's active and very alert, exhibiting a bit of a regal carriage, but isn't particularly skittish.

She's been laying about 5 eggs/week.

You take wonderful photos of her... very professional looking. She reminds me of my Penelope, with her regal posture.

Here's what she looked like when we found her on Jan 1 (10 weeks ago):
