    Wow! You guys are speedy! The others have fluffier heads..so i was starting to think cochin mix. I have 4 roos and went to get hens...this one was the only one with any type of comb so i started doubting my pick when i got home! Thanks so much!

    I'll guess female, probably a cross between cochin (splash?) and something else, like maybe a game banty (the face brings to mind an OEGB). Just a thought.

    Here are the others. I agree she does have the old english game look about her..i have 3 roos and a hen of that breed. The pic shows the other 2 with fluffier heads. I really love the black ones! They have a couple feathers on feet but not many...some other mix...but thats ok...they are all cute!
