    This chicken is at our local animal control that I foster for and they will give her to us if not claimed by her owners, I have no idea what she is! Any thoughts??????(this is the only pic I can get of her)

    I don't know what it is but its pretty. Could be a roo though based on the comb size. Any idea how old?

    NOT speaking from personal experience, but I've heard them to be good pets if handled well, if a little flighty, and prolific layers and great broodys.​
