    Ok, so I got a free chicken to add to my flock via the neighbor across the street.

    Have no clue to her breed. I know its a SHE due to the lack of spurs and her enlarged vent from previous egg laying.

    (She has not laid since her arrival.) [​IMG]

    She appears to be an oriental mix. Thai, Asil, Shamo?

    The oriental games are not rare, but are usually kept by folks who choose to have a flock of them. You usually don't find them hanging out in a mixed flock. She's very pretty, but I understand dog treats. FYI, if you have to send her to freezer camp, chickens LOVE chicken! They can clean a chicken carcass before you get back in the house!

    Apparently this hen was kept alone. Not sure on if she was free ranged or cooped up. She does seem to detest being confined, that I am sure of.

    ( After a couple days she starts to pull her feathers out )

    Anyway you can suggest to break her aggression aside from the pinless peepers? I dont think they stock them at my local feed store, and ordering online is gonna be a few weeks at least.

    (due to funds)

    if you want to keep her you might have to coop her by herself. my parents have a rooster that has to be kept by himself due to aggression.

    another note you cant tell the gender of a chicken by using spurs, again my parents have quite a few hens with some very nice spurs.

    I think you misunderstood. I said she is most def a hen due to her total lack of spurs. I have never heard of a rooster that does not have spurs.

    On the other hand I have heard of hens that can grow spurs, as you mention.


    I'm in the process of trying to re-home her. I don't have the $$$ to buy materials for yet another coop much less feed a bird who does not produce eggs well.

    If no one takes her I will pan fry her for doggy treats.
