    One of our first steps into chicken husbandry was to acquire this lovely lady and the 9 chicks she was still raising at that time. We named her "Cruella" (yes, like the Disney villain), because she was so ferocious (she has wicked spurs!). Possibly she had been used to breed game cocks for fighting? ( [​IMG]).

    I would like to know, just out of curiosity... IS she a specific breed ("oegb"??), and/or coloration? Thanks!!


    Here's mama with her latest batch of little fuzz-balls (minus a few tail feathers, from defending a predator attack!!):

    And yes, she's much, MUCH tamer now:

    She's a gamefowl, I just don't know what she is. There is a thread called "Show Off Your Amercian Gamefowl" post these pics there. The guys there are always willing to help

    Her color most closely matches the wheaten variety.
