Quail Belgian Bearded d'Anver

This is Baby, my little house chicken. She's tiny, and would be picked on by the flock, so she sleeps in the house with me. During the day she runs around outside with the others, feasting on veggies, worms, bugs, fruit, and all sorts of tasty treats. Quail refers to the patterning of her feathers, and Bearded refers to the fluffy feathers on her chin and cheeks. The breed is a true bantam breed, and has no counterpart in the heavy breeds. Characteristically, they are very friendly and gentle. At times they resemble little owls.
