Name that Game Hen (variety? color?)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

One of our first steps into chicken husbandry was to acquire this lovely lady and the 9 chicks she was still raising at that time.  We named her "Cruella" (yes, like the Disney villain), because she was so ferocious (she has wicked spurs!).  Possibly she had been used to breed game cocks for fighting?  ( :tongue).

 

I would like to know, just out of curiosity...  IS she a specific breed ("oegb"??), and/or coloration?  Thanks!!

 

 

Here's mama with her latest batch of little fuzz-balls (minus a few tail feathers, from defending a predator attack!!):

 

 

And yes, she's much, MUCH tamer now:

Her color most closely matches the wheaten variety.

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

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
