    Is this an oriental gamefowl or gamefowl mix? Someone said it is a saipan or another oriental gamefowl. It does have a brow and no comb but I couldn't find this color pattern in oriental gamefowl. It is not aggressive. I don't know it's age. The guy I got 2 Wyandotte youngsters (advertised as 12 week old I think) gave it to me for free. I thought it was a GLW going through a scrawny stage but I've had for a little over a month and it has not rounded out.

    Thai, is likely, it is too long and tall to be a Cornish.

    It looks like it may be crossed with a Wyandotte, because of the partial lacing and what looks like a rose comb.

    It is a hen though, she is beautiful [​IMG]

    I'm kinda thinking its a shamo/Wyandotte cross too. The guy I got it from was turning over birds he got from a flock sell out and I remembered later on today he mentioned there being a lot of game birds there and I'm familiar with the person who bought the game birds. I reached out to them to see if they could id and they said shamo mix. They are reaching out to the original flock owner to get more info about this one. She is a spunky one for sure. So far not aggressive. She's bottom of pecking order as far as I can tell. But I am concerned that will change as she matures. I'll keep an eye on her. Thanks for finding beauty in this 'ugly duckling'. LOL. I've been really expecting her to go through a transformation and round out but I guess she's got no where to go but up. LOL. I'll take good care of her and it'll be interesting to see mature into an adult.

    I love oriental games, wish they weren't so expensive to get, I have a few Malays and Thais. I love the long tall birds

    I guess I did good b/c I got her for free. I'll post an update if I get more info about her origins.

    Shamos have pea combs, its 3 little rows of bumps if you didnt know already.
    In the second picture it looks like she has a rose comb, but it may just be the lighting. She has the right body type to be pure, if she was crossed, I think she would be fluffier because of the wyandottes loose feathering.
