    This hen volunteered to join my flock. Anyone have any guesses what breed she might be? Game fowl are popular in the area, as well as layers and multipurpose breeds from commercial hatcheries. What color would you call this?

    Yup, I think probably a game mix because of the white earlobes, which aren't a characteristic of purebred games. She's cute as a button.

    Thanks everybody. Her comb and leg color aren’t right to be a hatchery Easter Egger. I don’t think she’s Wheaton based color because of the black in her hackles.

    She does look like a mix with some game fowl in there. I hope she isn’t too old to be laying. People sometimes dump unwanted animals along my road. I got a darling cat that way, and now a cute little hen.
