    What breed is she exactly?

    This is our little bantam hen, Ruby. My neighbors had her in a cage by herself for a while after her friends were eaten by raccoons. [​IMG] She's about 15 years old, and he wasn't sure what breed she was. He gave her to us so he could travel, and I'm extremely curious about what she is. [​IMG]

    She has feather feet. [​IMG]

    WOW, she dosnt look her age at all, does she act it at all? I have a silki Roo that is prety old (dont know exactly how old) and he has a hard time walking due to bad joints in his legs (his feet were tied together with string when I got him, he could bairly walk, let alone run & the string was there since he was little because it was dug DEEP in his feet). He looks old too. somehow he still manages to fertrlize eggs in warm wether & teach "bad chickens" a lesson or two. lol:rolleyes:

    Yeah she walks pretty slow most of the time and has some issues with her old feet...I know it's surprising but she really is that old! Crazy stuff lol [​IMG]
