    I just picked up this very scared girl from a local feed store today. We lost one of our flock of two to a predator a couple months ago and I finally decided to get another. I am curious what breed she is and can anyone guess how old she is?

    I agree game hen, and I would guess about 16 weeks...a teenager just before point of lay as her comb is pink but not red.

    Game mix. I would say that she's less than a year old. I'm not sure exactly how old she is, though would lean towards around 5 months.
