    This is trixy. She usually lays an egg a day. She is very small...not much bigger than my 9 or 10 week old black silkie/polish cross. Any idea what breed she is? A friend gave her to me.

    She looks a little chunky for an Old English Game Bantam. Not any recognized color either. Maybe a wyandotte mix?

    I agree she looks thick to be a game hen. What color eggs does she lay? She's cute as anything.
