    I've been googling bantam breeds and several Silver Duckwing OEGBs looked surprisingly like her.

    Are they usually aggressive towards other chickens? She has gone after every chicken I've introduced her to with the intent to draw blood. This isn't trying to establish dominance, this is pure hackles up, pecking and chasing the, sometimes much bigger, chicken around until I rescue it from her. She literally will not stop chasing and pecking the other chickens, at one point she had SEVEN large hens and an 8lb roo running for their lives.

    They are a Game breed, which means they were bred for cockfighting. Thus, they tend to be very aggressive, especially the roosters.

    agree on both posts - I'm afraid of her and she cannot even see me.

    The chicken version of Cujo, LOL.
    I bought her some diapers with comic book "action words " (POW!, BOOM!, etc) all over them, perfect match for her personality.

    Lucky. She was killed by a predator a month ago and I'm looking for another SD OEGB hen.
