    This is Melbourne or "Mel." She's our Australorp.

    This is Senorita. She's a game hen...American Game???

    This is Ginger. She's not red enough to be a RIR. Is she maybe a NH Red?

    Delilah kinda looks like a Delaware, but not quite. She also looks like a brahma without the leg feathers. Any thoughts?

    Senorita, Delilah and Melbourne striking fear in every small insect in the lawn.

    Any help figuring out what kind of game hen Senorita might be and also help with Ginger and Delilah would be great!

    I personally think your right about the breeds, but WHOA! I've never seen a hen with a bigger tail in my life [​IMG] Gorgeous birds! [​IMG]

    Thanks, we definitely pamper our birds. The "big tailed" hen is our game hen. She's at the absolute bottom of the pecking order. She's FINALLY getting close enough to me that I think she may be eating out of my hand soon. The others have no fear of us whatsoever.

    I bought the game hen at a flea market. She was so beautiful that I couldn't resist her. I also wanted her because I've heard they go broody easily, and I'd like to have a living incubator.

    Ginger looks a little like a Sex link because of the white on her tail.

    I kinda thought that too. I keep flip flopping between sex link and NHR.

    Any opinions on Delilah? Is she a Delaware or something else?

    Man, Senorita is like 1/2 hen, 1/2 tail!!! [​IMG]

    I think Ginger has BO in her. She's kinda golden red, plus it looks like her legs are white.

    Thanks!

    Senorita's a real flier too. She flies 20 feet or more into our trees. I love it.

    I wouldn't even think about clipping her wings.

    Ginger looks a lot like my BO's, but with the added white tail feathers.
