    My six year old adopted this chicken from a friend who said it was a game hen. Looks like a hawk. Sadly she died last night. I only have these photos. When we buried her, we saw white belly. Face somewhat red. Red combs. brown-red-beige feathers like a hawk. Would love to replace but have no real clue what she was! help?

    The comb looks like she's mixed, game birds have straight combs. You could get a very similar looking bird from a game hen or an easter egger.

    Thank you. I did not even realize the birds of two different breeds could mix. Species like game vs Cochin for instance. Thanks! Sad news for my daughter though.
