    She weighs 2 pounds 8 ounces, she is 22 weeks old and is much smaller than even my leghorn!

    As a chick she was a little smaller then the others (LF and leghorns)
    ETA: the one on the left, she is next to an unknown bantam.

    and now here she is, my 6 year old sister is holding her. Her ears are light blue, and she has started squatting so I think that she is done growing.

    Thank you!

    I got her from MPC and some previous guesses were, Minorca, Black Andalusian, and Black Leghorn.

    If she has blue earlobes that usually means she has some Silkie in her, is her skin black?

    She has pinkish/yellow skin, I just looked for blue earlobed chickens and I read that dutch bantams also have blue earlobes, could she be a dutch bantam?

    ETA: I just read the average weight for them, way to light!

    Could she be an Andalusion?

    I was thinking that she was a black andalusian, but she is so tiny! and she is already squatting and widening to start laying eggs.

    Do your Andalusians have blue earlobes?

    My andalusian is comparable to a smallish leghorn hen in size...

    She is either an andalusian or a minorca. Leghorn would have yellow legs.
