Need Help Identifying rescue Chicken

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can anyone help me identify this rescue chicken? Pretty sure it's a game chicken because it has long legs and is really pretty ugly. Thanks! [IMG]

Yep, I'd say a basic ol gamefowl stag. The body kinda has an OEG or maybe Modern Game type to it but honestly gamefowl are so mixed, it's really impossible to be sure unless you knew the breeder.

So do I.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Game mix.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.

He is cute-ish. But he's very sketchy. Even though I've raised him since he was a chick, he won't let you get anywhere near. Unfortunately though I'll be getting rid of him, as my little flock already has a roo, an adorable red cochin bantam named Thor. Just glad I could raise him and give him a shot at life after we found him abandoned by his mom.
