Need help identifying this chicken breed.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Trying to identify this chicken breed. – This hen was found in our boat and she had laid six small white eggs. We have no idea where the hen came from and I am keeping it separated from our backyard hens. Currently it can fly really well. Thank you.

American Game? Interesting that she has no visible comb or wattles. Folks don't usually dub hens.

Amazingly, this hen was getting into our boat and lifting the hatch of our anchor well to lay her eggs for at least six days and we are pretty sure based on the number of eggs that this started while the boat was at the repair shop. The boat shop is located in a commercial area of town in N Florida. Not knowing anything about this hen, I am not sure if she was dubbed. There is no sign of injury.

You might post her picture on the "Show off Your American Gamefowl" thread and see what the experts think. There are other possibilities but that, or a mix, seems likely to me.

Thank you again. I think you are correct. I looked at photos on the American Game section and there is a photo that just about matches the hen that came to be with me.
