    A friend of ours rescued her from running loose in a neighborhood. The breed looks really familiar to me, but I just can't place it or find any pictures here that look like her. Opinions?

    I haven't seen her myself yet, but after we get back from vacation we will probably introduce her to our flock.

    She's certainly a game hen, my guess would be American Game.

    Lol! That bird couldn't be any more of a game hen if she tried! Up a tree is just classic [​IMG]

    She might be a Ginger Game Hen, but I'm not an expert on them.

    Hope that at least points the right direction!

    Thanks everyone! Anyone have any insight on their temperment? Will there be any problems introducing her into an existing flock of 6 hens? This will be the first time I've tried to make additions.
