    She looks like she might be a Silver Phoenix.

    Does she look like a breeder or hatchery bird? The feedstore owner claims a "breeder" regularly dumps birds off at his store. His has a row of cages full of all different breeds. Buff Orpingtons, Buttercups, Silkies, etc. Most are Roos though.

    Could she be an Old English Game Bantam? I bought a chicken book today and they have pic of a little hen that looks just like her.

    Here are my OEGH. [​IMG]

    She is molting so no tail

    Tail is down but in the shadows. LOL

    I never had Phoenix hens but they do look similar. Maybe yours is a mix. I have 4 OEGH and 3 look distinctly different. as the first 2 are like twins and I cant tell them apart.

    I don't have pure breed so that is why..

    Did yours grow up together? I can't get mine to coexist peacefully with any bird I own![​IMG]
