Pretty little game hen - What breed?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I traded with a friend for this hen and her single chick a couple months ago. All my friend knew is that she is a game, he wasn't sure on her actual breed. Any Ideas?

 

 

I'm pretty sure her chick is male, I can't wait to see what he'll look like!

Lots o chickens!

5 Pekin and Pekin x Mallard ducks!

Thanks! She does have a pea comb - the Americans I've seen have single combs. Can they have pea combs too?

I don't know a whole lot about game breeds haha

You're welcome. American Game hens can have either pea or single combs. BYC has a good article on them at http://www.backyardchickens.com/products/american-game. :o)
