    Hi all, I picked up this little banty from the OKC pound. They had it listed as a female, approximately 1 year old. I haven't heard any crowing but it is definitely louder than my other chickens! The coloring makes me think hen, but the comb has me questioning. I am also assuming OEGB or mutt? It resembled some pictures I saw of the OEGBs, hence the guess! Thank you for your help! (Sorry for the cell phone pictures. It's been raining and I didn't want to drag my big camera out)

    It's a little OEGB bantam hen for sure. She looks like a typical female version of a "Black Breasted Red".

    Really cute little girl, and thanks for rescuing her, I'm sure she'll be a great addition to your flock.

    If you want to raise chicks, I'll bet she'll be the girl for you! Games are great mothers.

    Wonderful! I am happy to report that she's been adopted into the flock already and seems to be the bully of the bunch, go figure, lol. I was happy to spring her from chicken jail and if she's a good momma, that's just a bonus! Thanks again for your replies. I haven't even gotten an egg yet but I love keeping and watching these dang birds.

    Ok I know you have had you girl for probably a while but I thought you should know that when you first introduce a new chicken into your flock, do not let the new chicken with the new birds for 10 days to insure the seller didn't give you a sick bird and you don't get all of your other birds sick!! That's how a majority of mine died. [​IMG] But just know all OEGB are very loving (most of the time) but you have to experience it for your self! Have fun with your lovely HEN!!
