    Hello, I spotted this hen near a friends house yesterday. According to the neighbors, she has been around for months, and probably escaped from the local livestock auction. Just wondering if anyone has any idea as to what her breed may be. She is a pretty little thing, and looks very healthy.

    She looks like a gamefowl with that small comb, but she has the Light Brown Leghorn color and tail angle.
