    I have two unrelated chickens whose breed is a mystery to me! The rooster is about a year old, he was dumped on a country road outside a kinda shady town at 6 months of age or so. I figured he was some kind of gamefowl but not really sure. He's a real nice rooster though.
    Also I have an older hen given to me by a friend. She lays tons of big brown eggs and is super skittish! She is a smaller hen and looks like a leghorn, but like I said lays huge brown eggs.

    Crazy mystery hen! As you can probably tell you can't get close to her. She has white earlobes and a big floppy comb.

    Any ideas on their breed would be appreciated!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    The rooster looks like a Cream legbar and the hen a Brown Leghorn.
