Hi all,

Wondering if anyone can offer any ideas on the breed mix of our girl Henny Penny. She is at least 2 years old since we have had her for almost that long and got her as a fully grown bird.

I know she is part silkie (blue ears, 5 toes), but am super interested to know what other breed/s she has in her?

Any help/suggestions much appreciated. She is a bantam sized bird.

OR
She looks like what is known as a "Gold Top" in Great Britain. Not sure if they are a known hybrid in Australia, too. They are an intentional hybrid between a silkie and a light sussex.

Oh! She does! I’d bet that’s what she is.

They come in a bantam version, too
