    This is Charlotte - when she was a chick, we thought we were purchasing a Blue Andalusian.

    She is small in stature - almost bantam sized. However - she lays a small WHITE egg - so we have to count Barred Rock out. What do you think she is?

    You might have yourself a Barred Holland. I'm not familiar with the breed so I'll let someone else chime in.

    That's what I was thinking, also. Or maybe a california grey? I'm not familiar enough with either of them to tell the difference.

    How big do Barred Holland get? Because - Charlotte is on the small side. When I was searching Barred Holland, all the websites made it sound as if they are a large bird.
