    Looks like a gold duckwing (coloring) game (breed). Do you have a larger picture? I'm hesitant to say if it's Old English, American, or possibly Oriental because the avatar picture is kinda fuzzy.

    [​IMG] Thank you chickngurl. My daughter and her husband went to an auction about 6 yrs. ago and got a 2 doz. assortment of peeps. (.50 ea.) They grew up to be really pretty hens and roos. My daughter got tired of "chicken farming" and gave the ones they could catch to some farmer. The 3 they couldn't catch came next door to my house 'cause I fed them all the time. There is Dad rooster and Son rooster and Rosemary, a red hen. Rosemary still lays eggs and sits on them. [​IMG] [​IMG]
