    I know its a hen but i don't know her breed. her feathers have a black green sheen and she has just a tint ot tan/gray around her neck. I noticed that her comb lookes kinda funny, but im not sure if that is how it is or if the owner before me tried to dubb her. Any guesses? [​IMG]

    I would have to agree, it looks like a Game Hen to me also.

    I don't want to sound like a smart a$$, but is the term "game" a breed? Im kinda new to chickens and didn't know. thanks for the help so far. She does lay good, better than some of my heavy breeds do. She lays a cream colored egg......[​IMG]

    Quote:Yes, games are a breed. There a several breeds of games, however. Then, within the breed are several varieites (colors).

    Hope that's not too confusing. [​IMG]

    I have a black sex link that could just about be her twin, funny looking comb and all. For my hen, I thought her comb was weird because she might have gotten a touch of frostbite last winter.

    How big is your bird? Bantam or standard? What color legs, number of toes?
