    Aloha, welcome to BYC. That's a beautiful hen as are many of the semi feral birds in Hawaii. Generally I quarantine new birds for at least two weeks, but that hen has probably been exposed to and survived everything.

    Mahalo n ya so far answered all i had ta ask so far excwpt still not exaxtly sure of her breed a friend was trippin out when she realised my lil tiny white had grown into this amazingly beautiful white with speckles of red orange with some brown on top of her wings n black n grey with hint of brown n white on tail feathers any ideas on what breed she is i know she had a batch of black n grey babys one of which is in my yard right now. We hav so many chickens runnin loose on maui its not the smartest thing our county allows but it also aint the worst thing they turn blind eye to it
