    I traded with a friend for this hen and her single chick a couple months ago. All my friend knew is that she is a game, he wasn't sure on her actual breed. Any Ideas?

    I'm pretty sure her chick is male, I can't wait to see what he'll look like!

    Thanks! She does have a pea comb - the Americans I've seen have single combs. Can they have pea combs too?
    I don't know a whole lot about game breeds haha

    You're welcome. American Game hens can have either pea or single combs. BYC has a good article on them at https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/american-game. :eek:)
