Hi chicken lovers,
I have this chicken at home and i don't know what breed it is.
The person we got it off said it was a silkie bantam, but i think it is an orpington.
Can someone help me please?


-Thanks

Looks like a Wyandotte or Wyandotte cross. Body shape is similar to an Orpington, but Orpingtons should have a single comb. This bird appears to have a rose comb.

That is the wrong type of comb for an orpington. They should have a single comb. Does she have feathers on her feet? She just looks like a cochin (one ball of feather & fluff) from this angle, but cochins have feathers on legs/feet.

That said, it does look like a bantam.

Both birds look like silky crosses. Perhaps silky/cochin crosses. I'm almost willing to bet that they have five toes on each foot.
