    This is a post about our new bird, Maragret! We adopted her from a local shelter in town. She's currently in quarantine in our garage before moving out with the other girls... but she is one of the oddest looking chickens I've ever seen.

    Here are the photos, but she was very difficult to photograph and just wanted to run around. She's got a crown on her head that reminds me of a blue jay, feathered feet... and she's mostly all black with white spots. But her flight feathers are all WHITE. Couldn't get a picture of that though...
    Not to mention she is extremely small and should be about 3 months at the time of these photos. A possible bantam?

    What is she??

    ((forgot to add how small she is! MUCH tinier than any of our other birds at this age.))

    I can tell you from the little white dots that she is Split Mottled ( carrying one copy of the mottleing gene but not showing it and the dots will molt out soon) So I would say probably a Polish X Mottled Cochin.

    I agree with the split mottled, but I think instead of cochin, possibly d'uccle or even silkie, but probably d'Uccle because of the small size. My d'Uccle hens are teeny tiny, and thier babies (which are mixes) are often very small too!

    So my vote is bantam polish with mottled d'Uccle.

    Quote:OK I wouldnt say Silkie but yeah a Mottled or Mille Fleur dUccle X Polish could be a reasonable possibility too,
