    hi all , i just found this young lady in my driveway . ran right up to my coop. doesnt seem to mind the older hens. but not use to people as a pet . perhaps 6 months old ? looks like she just finnished a molt. but that someone in her old neighborhood pecked her tail feathers. otherwise seems clean and in good health . any thoughts as to a breed ? thanks katt

    She is a Game. Be sure and quarantine her away from your others.

    Not Cornish. Old English game, I think.

    She's some sort of gamebird or game bird mix. Possibly American Game or Old English Game.

    From her comb, I think she's a young bird. She doesn't look particularly thin from the pics. Game birds are lightweight things, I think only 4lbs or so? Definitely on the smallish side.
