    I meant "Banty or Bantam" but I can't edit the title......:/

    I wish I had a better picture, but I don't, she is not mine and these are the pictures my friend texted to me. This banty has a beard, I did not see muffs, she is crested, and has feathered legs. I did not get to see her tail shape though. I'll get a better picture tomorrow though, I am going to her house. Any idea what she is? She is cute cute cute, and very very broody!

    Agree she looks like a silkie mix. If she's got five toes on at least on foot and black skin, that's what she is.

    The blue ear lobes are tell tail signs that she has silkie in her.
