    My daughter was given this little bantam pullet but we don't know what kind she is, can someone help us?
    She is going to use it for small animal FFA poultry showmanship, its a sweet little bird.

    I found this picture of dutch wheaten bantams but it doesn't show the females very well, do you think ours could be this kind?

    It could be a Black Tailed Buff Japanese Bantam.

    She looks like a BT buff jap. If she's a hatchery bird, that would explain the long legs.
