    New to this site want to say HI to everyone and thanks in advance for your help.

    I was given this chicken - The pure white one - when it was about a day old. It is now almost 5 weeks old. I am guessing it is a bantam - never had Bantams before - because of it's very small size - you can see how the 3 day or so old light brahma chicks are almost it's size. I don't know if you can see it in the pictures, but He/She has green legs. Anyone have a guess as to the breed?

    I was thinking Cochin, but never having any was not sure. As for the green being a fungus, I don't think that is the case. It is a healthy active happy mini chicken. Its legs and feet look normal and healthy to me. She does not pick at them nor do any of the other chickens.

    I will get a close-up of the comb tonight.

    Looks like a cochin. Some chicks hatch with greenish beaks and legs, which fades as the mature.

    Here is a pic of her comb. Looks like a single comb to me. Wasn't easy to get her to stand still. At least I have been told its female. And thanks for all the replies.
