    I found this young chicken and chased it for about 30 minutes before finally catching it. I brought it home but I can't seem to figure out if its a male or female. Help![​IMG]

    Female. Looks to be a Modern Game, kind of a rare/uncommon bird. Congrats on the find!

    What does that mean? I thought it was a buff Orpington.

    Wrong color, shape, and leg color for a buff Orpington. Buff Orpingtons are a large, heavy set bird with a uniform yellow/gold color.

    Nope, sorry not a Buff Orpington. Most certainly a Modern Game.

    Agree on the modern Game pullet. those freaky long legs are why you had to chase her so long! Most Orpingtons wouldn't have led you on such a merry chase [​IMG]
