    I have no clue as to where this chicken came from since my closest neighbor only has sex link hens. It showed up in my yard this afternoon. None of my flock are going after her like they normally do when a newbie comes along.

    No idea, but she looks like some sort of game hen or game mix -- it's in the legs.

    its an Game hen.. I guess OEG

    shes pretty! They are kind of Stand-offish and shy.. They like to roost high up in trees and things at night, and they are known for Venturing off to Nieghbors Houses.. lol.. They make good mothers, theyll nest somewhere far off in a field and come back with the babies.. they are Great Egg Layers!

    I have several of them.

    Kinda funny -- Most breeds of chickens i like the roos. Games though? I am ALL about the hens. They are GORGEOUS.
