Oh no! I hope she gets better soon!

BTW, one of my other chickens is Easter Egger and she is different - calmer, less jumpy/flighty. She has fluffy feathers behind her eyes and she has always been very motherly - other hens since the beginning were coming to her to get comforted. She is the kindest thing I've seen! The new bird is looks different (very big tail, etc.).

That bird looks to be a Black Breasted Red pullet. I'm not sure of her exact breed though, the game-types all look the same to me.

I think you are spot on! Found another similar thread and birds look identical. Thanks for the hint! I'm still a bit lost with difference between "black breasted red" and "game" but I think I get what you are saying. Will do more reading. I can't find "black breasted red" in the list of breeds in this site. But I found Red-Breasted Rosecomb Bantam which also look similar. Still a bit confusing for me, but I think the picture begins to emerge. Thanks!

Black breasted Red is a color, not a breed.

I have 3 Inmate, Diesel & Penny (she's the one in the ER). She's doing good, But I think her left eye is gone. I'm just glad she's alive!
