    Hi, my name is john and I have a new chicken that I need help to determine the breed. I think it's a spangled old English game fowl.[​IMG]

    Sorry can't tell anything from your picture. You can see the entire bird, we can barely make out a chicken with it's back to us. Good, clear closeups on face (showing comb) and standing sideview - also age at time of photos.

    Welcome to BYC, John! Glad you decided to join our flock. It looks to me from your pic that your pullet has more colors in its feathering than is usual for a Spangled Old English Game hen, but the pic is dark and from a poor angle so I can't be certain. If you can post a profile pic on our What Breed or Gender is This? link left that Mountain Peeps left you with, you should be able to get a more definitive answer. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting your pullet identified.
