    I agree with D'Diva regarding the Breeds Forum. I've no idea on the breed. She looks tiny.

    Diva's point was that while you know the bird is female, the forum she mentioned is also for breed identification -- it is best to take photos of a bird in a natural, standing position using natural lighting and showing the whole bird, legs included from the side profile. What color egg is this bird producing? When you say the eggs are fairy eggs are you going just by the size (this bird appears to be a bantam so small eggs are to be expected) or are they true "fairy" eggs that lack yolk and are white only?

    Hm.. from the pictures given she looks like either really poor quality or a mix breed easter egger or faverolle. I didn't see her legs so no telling at this point
