    Zaxby, the white hen with multicolored splotches, is an unknown breed! I think she is some type of game hen, but I'm not quite sure. Please help![​IMG]

    Zaxby has some serious spur action going on there. Are you sure that's a she?

    That said, your chook is a color called 'mottled' or 'millefleur', which is only common in a handful of breeds.

    You're right, it does sort of look gameish...

    My guess? Mixed breed.

    Oh, no, don't tell me that it's a rooster! I only needed hens...hahaha. The man told me it's a hen, but he could be wrong. Thanks!

    Looks like a mixed game bird hen. Many game bird hens develop spurs-- I don't see any rooster traits.

    Yep, definitely a game hen. Color would be a mille fleur or mottled as someone else mentioned.
