    I just got her because she is the same size as my RIR pullets. Now I have the eight I planned to have. Can you tell me what breed she is?

    I agree she looks like a game to me. If so she'll be a good broody.

    I'm still pretty new at this. What's a broody? What's a hackle?

    Broody means they like to set. Hackles are the feather towards the bottom of the neck. [​IMG]
