    Trying to identify this lil girl-she THINKS she's a Silkie, as she came with a shipment of them as the 'free rare/exotic'.. Feathered legs, quite small.

    She looks like a Dark Brahma pullet to me. Page 7 of Murray's catalog. She is bantam if she is small, LF if she isn't. Check out the LF hen, you'll see that beautiful ticking. One of the prettiest hens.
