Do you have another picture of the hen you think is an ardenner?
I don't think so. They are all in the coop right now in bed. I'll try to get more tomorrow.
All I know is that she is standard sized and pure breed. Here are some pictures I might've already uploaded on this thread. Hopefully they help.

Sheโ€™s a silver leghorn.
So could the rooster in the photos be a black breasted red jungle fowl (standard)?
This is a photo I found on google, resembling my rooster. The photo is of a black breasted red old english game fowl rooster. https://www.google.com/search?q=bla...A&biw=1440&bih=789&dpr=1#imgrc=JPMpNgmj_DP5VM
He looks like a standard old English game, not red junglefowl.

What kind of comb does he have? I know it's a mix between 2, but what is it considered?

She's still really small. Probably my smallest full-grown (I think she's full grown :idunno) chicken! But laying eggs! :)

Since his comb is mixed, it doesnโ€™t have an official name, though I suppose you could call it an impure buttercup comb. He has to have both single and v-comb genetics, so his mother is a crevecoeur mix (v-comb is recessive, so can hide under your mixed henโ€™s comb type). His father is either the sebright (assuming he has a recessive single comb gene, common in hatchery birds) or the OEGB. If the father is the gold sebright, he wouldโ€™ve gotten the silver gene from his mother.
She looks like a buff cochin x standard old English game.

I don't have any standard old english game at this time. The one pictured in the last page (I believe) is one that is long gone. I only have a silver duckwing OEGB. Bantam sized.
I thought this hen was a possible parent?:
I don't have any modern game hens. The closest I have to a modern game is a black breasted red old english STANDARD sized hen. At least that's what I think she is. She matches these (v) photos on google: and she has long legs :)

She looks like this. Probably some kind of jungle fowl. But she's not a bantam, and that cockerel is the same size as my silver duckwing OEGB.
As for the bird in question, I couldn't find her anywhere today ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Maybe a predator got to her.
The one time I need a picture of her, she's no where to be found. I hope I didn't look hard enough. I hope I found her tomorrow.

I went through some pics, and I found some pictures of her. Sorry, they're not the best..

What breed is she?


(In some of the pictures, she's the one in the corner/behind the rooster)
View attachment 2890188 View attachment 2890189 My son brought her into the house one time so I could snap a few pics :lol: When he did that, I wasn't so happy. But now, I'm glad he did because now we have some more pictures if she's truly gone. She's pretty special to us, since she's one of the original 5. She's also pretty old... 6+ yrs old!
I hope she's still alive โค๏ธ View attachment 2890191

Oh yes, sorry. I forgot about her. She disappeared after the chicks hatched, so she is a possible parent. The Standard Old English rooster is not a possible parent.
