    This is my hen Stripes she died/ran away last year. I miss her so much. She was so nice. and then sadly she got a bloody head, but she healed from that because we seperated her from the other chickens. We let her free range but ran away because I knew she was having a horrible life. [​IMG] I miss her to this day. Can anyone tell me what breed she is? Thanks

    She looks like one of my EEs. Did she lay colored eggs?

    Sorry for your loss and sorry you are missing her.

    Not an OEGB, looks like a cross of some sort. I can tell you it is a white egg layer though. Sorry for your loss, I felt the same way when one of my first Buff Orpingtons died. I liked it more than all of my quail or any other breed of chicken, turkey ext.[​IMG]

    Old English Game Bantam. There are different color varieties, and that is not a pure color but may be part OEGB, definitely not pure...​

    I'm so sorry for your loss. It's really hard when a bird you love simply disappears. I think she might be a Phoenix hen.
