    She (I'm fairly sure it's a she) looks a lot like my Asil and Asil cross pullets. They're not as small as the bantams but they're definitely aren't the size of my standards. I'll have to see if I can get a pic of them while they're out running around.

    Cindy,

    I'd love to see them! This baby is in my niece's flock and I think it's getting picked on. It is the smallest of the bunch. It's also the only one of it's kind.

    This one would be prettier if its feathers had a sheen to them, but they are kinda dull. Should she consider trading it out?

    I think that's an australorp, and I think it is a pullet. I could be wrong, though. I thought my australorp was a pullet until about 3 weeks, ago. I looked at her and saw the biggest, reddest comb and wattles I have ever seen. Boy, did she fool me!!

    I don't think she's oriental game, or a cross... most of them have pea combs and her's is a single comb.

    Sorry I couldn't get closer pictures. The babies are still a little nervous.
