    Someone abandoned this pretty thing at my work. I'm fairly certain it's female. I'm not entirely sure of her breed. She might be a barred rock or maybe a cross of different breeds? I checked her for mites (clean so far) and she has a very good appetite. My guess is she's only about eight weeks old? I'm just guessing, though. Any thoughts?

    Looks like a young game breed of some sort, looks older than 8 weeks, but hard to tell by just a picture. Others might have a better idea.

    Looks like a pullet, around the age you thought (8 -10 weeks). Could be a gamebird of some sort; we'll know for sure when she gets older.

    Looks like a game breed pullet to me as well. I'd say 6-8 weeks, doesn't look very old to me.

    No Rock there, she's a game bird of some sort, probably mixed variety. Definitely female, though.
