    I told you I would post pics of the hens I got. As some of you know when I asked the farmer what types of chickens these were he said " Them's just game hens and they lay sum good eggs " lol. Well I tried to research game hen and found out there are lots of different types. This pic is bad because I had to use my cell phone, I will get my digital camera back later on and get some better more detailed pics.

    They look like pet quality old english or american game hens. The one on the left in the first pic looks like she is wheaton coloring.

    ETA: I bet they do lay good eggs and are good mothers and you will love them. Thats what happened to me when I got 2 at a swap.

    They look way too big for oegbs. I'd say they're just game crosses.

    Yes, but the type is off, even for an OEG.
