    I believe it is a old english game hen, not sure though. I have 4 but the picture is not to clear.

    Quote:Huh she may be- I got two gray/blue hens that he said were game hens. I don't really care because i just wanted some hens that will set good . I got a whole cage of chickens for 20 bucks and they were in it. I'm trying to build a subflock of setters--that's my plan anyways--Don't know what they got planned yet though!! [​IMG]

  5. Take a look at my BYC link below. I have a few red jungle fowl hens in the picture. They do come in basically two color patterns. The one in the pic in one and the other is behind her.

    Quote:She's not the color of the hen in the foreground and i can't tell about the other hen.. Her color looks similar to the brown leghorn hen pics I have seen but her comb is really small but not a pea or rose comb. Her legs are a dark slate color.
    Those bird of yours look really great by the way---Thanks --Wayne
