    I have a bantam called Soup whose breed I have completely forgotten, except for that I think it had quite a long name.
    She's light pale coloured with a light grey collar and a grey tail, but her friend who is the same breed is quite dark brown with similar markings in black. They are medium sized to biggish bantams, not too much smaller than my Columbian Blacktails when fluffed up and over half their size when normal. They have pale pink feet and small, bright red combs. Their eyes are yellow near the pupil, darkening to red around the edges. Their beaks are very light brown.

    Their markings are the same those of Buff Brahma bantams, Wyandotte Columbias and Buff Sussexes, but I don't think Soup is either of them, especially since Chicken (her friend, same breed (great names, I know)) is so much darker.

    This is Soup:

    Here you can see her markings more clearly, although I chopped her head off:

    Here she is from above (ish) with Chicken:

    A better view of her legs:

    Close up of her head:

    And a picture of Chicken
    , if it helps, although she's so ill and bald at the moment you can't really tell what she'd look like (it's a rubbish photo too):

    Any ideas? Thank you! [​IMG]

    Thank you for the replies. Yes, I thought they were Wyandottes, but lots of breeds look very similar. They certainly aren't mixes, though, but yes they are beautiful! [​IMG]

    Can a blue laced red wyandotte be splash instead of blue? If so, that's what I'd guess she is. [​IMG]
