    Just curious, what do you think this chicken is? We got her as a rescue, someone turned her in as a 'baby eagle'.

    What kind of comb does it have? I'd have to say columbian rock roo or some kind of mix.
    It looks like a light brahma- but no feathers on the legs. We used to call our brahma the baby hawk [​IMG]

    She looks kinda gamey with those long legs and a long neck
