    Cross bred as are the chicks. One chick appears to have Naked Neck influence.

    From what I can see, the hen's a mixed breed. Very likely has some game bird ancestry, but mixed with something due to the comb and earlobes.

    The chicks look like a true genetic pool, they may or may not be hers, and could easily have different fathers. Cute brood!
