I'm new on this forum and I need your help. I lost one of my speckled sussex to a fox recently, and in wanting to replace her word got around. I got a call from a man who said he had one. The pictures on this link are of the chicken he actually had. She is a brownish/reddish color with some light brown spots on her back and what looks like some green around her neck. I'm pretty positive she is not a sussex of any kind. I took her anyway, mainly because of the pity I felt for her seeing the conditions she WAS kept in. Today is her first day with my flock so I understand the tension, but the few interactions she has had she seems very aggressive towards my other Hens. I am actually more worried about my pullets who are fast, but not as well-equipped to defend themselves should she want to fight.
So the questions then are, 1) can you identify this breed for me? and 2) what are the chances that this chicken will warm up to my other girls (bear in mind I have introduced new chickens into my flock before without problems)?
