    Hi all.
    I'm told this hen is sumata (not sure of correct spelling) but my research say they're rare, surly I couldn't have accidentally ended up with a rare hen lol
    She's quite small. Flighty, scared of her own shadow. Hates to be handled and can be quite aggressive to other chickens. I have two hens like this, both have all white feathering, black legs and red face.[​IMG] She lays tiny white eggs almost daily and she's the only hen I have in my flock to go broody.
    She's looking a bit sorry for herself in the photo, poor girl is moulting and has bramble foot.

    All I can say is that she looks like some sort of gamebird or gamebird mix--gamebirds all look similar, so it is hard to tell exactly what they are. I hope she recovers from her bumblefoot!

    I think that she's a White Sumatra or White Sumatra/game breed mix.
