    What is my hen? We got her 3 weeks ago with her 5 chicks (3 black, a red/brown, and a yellow/white).. Maybe AmericanGame or mutt? and the last photo, is she an EE? Tell me what you think.

    She does look just like the photos I found of Golden Phoenix.... so it just dawned on me after seeing the photos of Golden Phoenix hens and chicks is that the yellow/white chick is probably her only "real" chick and the other's ( 3 black and the red/brown) are going to be surprises as to what they grow up to be!

    The photos are hard to tell but research buttercup or campine. She might be either of those.

    The first one looks like a game hen to me, but a profile shot would help.

    The last bird--the pic is wonky, does she have a crest? Or 5 toes? I'm just thinking silkie mix looking at her, I think cause of that comb...........a better pic would also help.

    She has a big bump on her head for a comb and a lot of feathers on her head. She also has a lot of feathers that stick out around her ears and cheeks. She has a loose pocket under her neck that she can poof up really big. These photos i made tonight are not great I will try and get some better one's tomorrow. Yes she is sitting on my RIR. That is a first. [​IMG]

    Oh, and I think the other one in my original post is a Black Breasted Red Phoenix hen. Y'all got me on the right track!
