    I have a little bantam chicken named Popcorn and her breed has been unknown since the day we got her. I got her from Tractor Supply about six or seven months ago when she was a chick and she was grouped under 'bantam'. Other than that I have no other info on her breed and I would really like know what she is. Here are some pics of her.
    I also had bought another chick named Dumpling under the same group as her who turned out to be a rooster but sadly a fox got him so he wasn't full sized but his pic may help.

    Popcorn is probably a mixed breed. She would appear to be a Black Breasted Red Old English Game bantam, but I think I'm seeing muffs and a small beard, which Old English Game don't have. Dumpling was a Silver Duckwing Old English Game.

    I agree.

    I'm sorry for your loss of Dumpling.

    She is likely a mixed breed, like @Wyandottes7 said. Yes to the BB red OEGB; probably crossed with a bantam EE somewhere, or maybe even a D'uccle. She is a pretty little girl! :)
