    wondering what kind of hens these are. we hatched them last year from eggs given to us by my father in law.

    They all look to have game bird blood in them.

    Most of them look like game crosses, except maybe the first one.

    so the black one is game too? i thought she might be different than the others. thank you all for your input. this is all pretty new to me.

    the hen with the red stuff on her head is the sweetest thing in the world. she will follow you around, gently take food from your hand and let you hold and pet her for a long time. the black one is friendly too. but the others i can not seem to get to be nice. any tips on that?

    Well, you need to be quiet and slow around them. Dont try to hand feed until she isn't too afraid of you. The main thing is be patient.
