    Hello! We have had this stray chicken visiting our backyard for the past couple of days. We live in town so you don't often see stray chickens haha. I was wondering if anyone knew what breed it is? We have 8 month old lavender orpingtons and it's pretty small compared to them. This is the best pic I could get.
    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to BYC. My guess is that she is a black breasted red game hen.

    Likely a BB Red game hen.

    Anytime someone posts about a mystery, rogue or feral chicken, game is a good guess [​IMG]

    I agree with the above. If you take her in, she's likely to be a decent layer and a wonderful broody momma.

    Thanks all! I may just end up adding her to our little flock if no one claims her!

    Be sure to quarantine her for at least 30 days away from your others to avoid the bringing in of disease if you do adopt her.
