    This is Frankie. I bought her last Friday from one of my local stockfeed places. The lady where I got her from told me the breed, but I've forgotten it. I do believe she is pure bred as the lady used to breed and show her birds. Apparently it is a large breed, and takes about a year to fully mature. They resemble a wedge tailed eagle.

    Notice the extra 'toenail'? She has this on both feet and apparently it's a characteristic of the breed. She also said they are a pretty docile breed and don't mind being handled, but a lot of people seem to think they're aggressive.
    Any suggestions would be wonderful [​IMG] Thank you in advance for your time!

    I don't think she is any of those, but thank you for the suggestions Mahonri [​IMG] If it helps any, she has very long legs. My Aussie Game hen and her run around together and they both look like raptors lol [​IMG]

    Similar?
    Except for those legs, I would think Rhode Island Red.

    I can't help you with breed, but I'm also thinking roo and would be interested in the age. Those are some mighty thick legs!

    Looks like a he, honestly, not a she.


    Most definitely not a Shamo, Cornish, or Asil, he's just a young Partridge Chantecler missing his tail. That or a Chantecler mutt.
