    Game hens are closer in type to 'wild' chickens, they go broody more often then some of the more 'modern', they make great mothers. They are pretty hardy birds also.

    Im sure some others can chime in, I'm not very familiar with them.

    She looks like a game breed mix to me, too.

    She did go broody but started pecking the chicks feathers out. So...
    So is mixed game a good breed?
