Greetings, I have found this site to be very informative in everything chicken related, so I decided to join. I am trying to Identify the breed of this deceased bird. Last year I bought 6 peacocks from a gentleman, and he gave me these birds as a freebie-2 hens and a cock. He called them Game hens. Apparently he used them for setting, which was my intention. He also stated the male was very aggressive, and not to let him around other males. So, I gave the male his own 8X8 pen, and the hens got one to share. They did great for about a month, then they all three died within a few days. Plenty of food, water, shade, etc. None of my other birds died, so I was pretty confused, but relieved at the same time. So, the reason I am here is, I was hoping to find out what type they were, as I am interested in having some sort of chicken that will set well, as most of my birds are egg layers and poor setters. I am also interested to find out if anyone else uses this breed for setting. The reason I took the birds in the first place, the reason they appealed to me, was because the gentlemen said they were more or less the same bids today that they were 200 years ago, and their instinct to brood, their more wild, original behavior was not breed out of them. I hope someone can help me out.
