    I've been looking all over the internet (and on BYC) for a hen that looks similar to this one.

    Any ideas on her breed?

    My immediate guess was Swedish Flower Hen, but I'm not sure if they ever get the pea combs...[​IMG] Let me know if I was right or close.

    Flower hens are mottled, she isn't.


    She looks like an American Game cross.

    Thank you for the reply's.

    She does look somewhat like an American Game in the face.

    My first thought was an American game x cubalaya or even an easter egger x leghorn due to the head shape, large comb/whitish earlobes

    she has some EE with the comb and the lack of wattle and some leghorn with those huge ear lobes. kind of an odd accumulation of face features
