    Nice calm bird. No idea on a breed. Looks like it might have a bit of cochin in it but looks like a mutt otherwise. Cute though.

    If you consider the birds general type and feathered legs, you can see the cochin resemblance, and the shape of head is similar to a game.

    ahhh never saw the feather legs, Im still debating on the game part though, just looks more.. "leghornish" or maybe a Vorwerk (SP?)

    If it were part leghorn, the comb would probably be larger than it is at 23 weeks...correct me if I'm wrong (which is a possibility..), but don't vorwerks have white earlobes? I know leghorns do...this pullet doesn't..hmmmm

    hm, I just dont see game there, no matter how much i stare at it, and i;ve been raised around every type of game there is. True leghorns and vorwerks have white earlobes, But just because they have them doesn't necessarily mean they will be passed to the offspring. guess it doesn't really matter could be a game and its just the cochin influence thats throwing me off

    This is true, it could be anything...
