I have a post over in Flock Management but wanted to toss this over here for more input.

This chicken is a stray that has been hanging around and giving me eggs
so she's definitely a keeper since my others haven't started laying yet. I was able to catch her and introduce her to the flock but I would really like to know what she is!
She's not a bantam size.. gives a smallish off white egg every day around noon!




Thanks for any input!

No idea, but she's exotic looking!!

Make sure you quarantine her appropriately before introducing her to the rest of the girls. Congrats, she's gorgeous!

Thanks everybody!

Someone pointed me to a pic of an Old English Game hen and Im prtty sure that is what she is. The head is unmistakable now! lol

She has been around the flock for about two weeks but just got caught an put in the coop with them Monday night.

She had been going in the coop during the day to lay an egg while everyone else were in their tractors.

Thanks for all the input!

Sorry but that does not look like an Old English game to me at all.

Think more along the lines of American Gamefowl. As to the specific strain, I have no idea.

No way is that a OEG hen,...like the above poster said, it's a American Game fowl hen...just look at the eyes.
