    Can anyone help me identify this rescue chicken? Pretty sure it's a game chicken because it has long legs and is really pretty ugly. Thanks! [​IMG][/IMG]

    Yep, I'd say a basic ol gamefowl stag. The body kinda has an OEG or maybe Modern Game type to it but honestly gamefowl are so mixed, it's really impossible to be sure unless you knew the breeder.

    He is cute-ish. But he's very sketchy. Even though I've raised him since he was a chick, he won't let you get anywhere near. Unfortunately though I'll be getting rid of him, as my little flock already has a roo, an adorable red cochin bantam named Thor. Just glad I could raise him and give him a shot at life after we found him abandoned by his mom.
