    we found this hen as a baby maybe a few days/weeks old in our front yard all beat up and scared. we took her in and nursed her back to health. she's grown very fast and exceeded our other dutch bantams in size and is still growing!! I looked online and I personally think she looks a bit like a modern game hen but I'm not sure. she's still not an adult yet. she is very shy & skittish but once we are able to catch her she will go to sleep in our
    arms or at least relax. I've been trying to hand feed her treats and regular food and she will eat it but doesn't stand still and runs away once it's gone.she stands pretty upright and tall on long legs. Long story short, any help in identifying her breed is much appreciated!

    My understanding is you all have a ton of feral birds in Hawaii, mostly game types. I'm pretty sure that's what she is.
