    Can anyone please help me ID this hen (White head and neck with Barred body)? She doesn't have any tail feathers, as she was in a pen with a picker (where I got her from... not in my pen), but hopefully that won't stump some of you experts in here. (-;

    She is medium sized,--you can see her there by one of the Ameraucana (pic below), but I presume quite possibly a bantam.

    If it helps, her personality is "crazy'... we call her "Wild Thing", because she truly is.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    little falls, mn
    She looks more like a Campine to me because of the barring:)

    Her legs are silver. The pic was taken in the kitchen, so there was a lot of yellow light.

    Thanks to everyone for your help to ID this hen. I took a look at photos of both breeds and am wondering if because of the length of white on her neck if that does indicate Campine and I did notice some pics of Campine with similar markings on the front. Though, I have not seen an egg from her yet, I was told her eggs were pink. I see they are classifying the Campine eggs as white while they say the Egyptian eggs are tinted pink -- not sure if perhaps both are maybe tinted pink and still called white... ????
