    I am new to this forum, and I am not too sure about posting pics. The picture I have is a little hen that is larger than my bantum, but smaller than my regular size hens. She is aggressive, and very broody. I was told that she may be a game hen. Does this sound right? Thanks.

    Bantams come in many sizesvarying from tiny serama (only a few ounces) to larger malay & shamo at 44 oz. And pretty much everything in between.

    Game hens can be broody; most broody hens tend to be aggressive. It's a good instinct for a mama hen.
