    I posted this on the barnevelder thread and didn't get a response so I am asking for your thoughts what breed is she. She is very small about the size of a crow. She has the markings of a barnevelder and that was what I was told she was when I purchased her. Her feet are not yellow they are dark. She is a sweet heart but I don't like calling her something she is not so please help ID this girl for me. Here is a picture of munchcan.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I would imagine she is a poor quality barnevelder due to the small head and colored legs or at least a barnevelder cross ??

    I agree she is not of good quality. I am really questioning if she is not a cross breed. Anyone else know? Sumatra thank you for answering my post and I do agree with you.

    She might be a bantam cross. Are her eggs the right color for a Barnevelder?

    She is about 21 wks old and started the squatting a few days ago plus she is showing interest in the nest box I thought for sure she was going to lay today but she left the nest after a couple of hours. Do you know the average time frame they start laying? I thought this is to soon

    I've heard anywhere from 16 to 22 weeks, so it sounds about the right time to me. Hopefully she'll lay soon to help us uncover the mystery. [​IMG]

    Farmerchef, she has a single comb with 5 points. Her comb is small but so is she about the size of a crow. I will post pics of her eggs as soon as she lays one. She has started the squatting and is interested in the nest.
