    I just got this girl from a friend - said she is a game hen. She is laying already and the same height of my 8wk old EE and Dominiquer - but much more petite. Is this a game hen? Anything special I should know about her breed?


    and yes quarantined and will be acclimated to the girls via separate enclosure.

    She looks like an Old English Game Bantam (OEGB) hen. This breed tends to be good at flying and they are lively and friendly to those who offer treats.

    Quote:Looks like an OEGB to me! Congratz they're great birds. Nothing special that comes to mind...I hear bantams are especially flighty and game are flighty already also some say bantams have more of a temper so watch out during broody time! Mine are the best brooders I have, they are like tiny incumbators...annnnddddd...they are very hardy birds! anyways, congrats again, my personal favorite breed!
