    I know you will be able to help me. Just found this gal in the front yard w/ my 3 Dobermans (she likes dogs). Trying to figure out what breed she is. Definately a hen. Pretty bird whatever she is. Thank you!!!! [​IMG]

    Her tail is a solid color. Small bird, maybe Bantam Old English Game Hen???

    Looks to be a silver wheaten, she isn't a old english or dutch. I'd say a cross.. Looks like she may have a pea comb? Can't tell.

    Looks more like a rose comb to me. SIlver wheaten? Maybe, the back colouring looks too dark.

    Quote:Yeah, wheatens can kind of come in a few different colors. The typical wheaten is a light colored hen, but i have some wheaten American game hens that are a dark color like her. You can see the silver in the hackles and throughout the feathers. I'm actually thinking she could be an american game cross, if not a pure one.
