    This hen was found wandering the suburbs and all attempts to find her owner failed . She has been with me for some time now since being delivered to my door . She is a broody little thing and I don't know what breed she is .

    Can you help solve this mystery once and for all ?


    Is she a modern game or malay game or something else ?[​IMG]

    Total guess but I think she looks like a Shamo or Saipan or cross of one or the other.

    She stands about the same height as a Isa Brown I guess.....she has a small compact body , she can be aggressive towards some of my other hens

    Bristow, ok
    Looks like a shamo to me. I had a shamo pullet for a couple of months. Body shape looks just like the one I had just a different color.
