    Ok this is my first time posting a picture, not sure if I did it correctly. If the picture comes up its of a hen that I got from a friend. She lost her entire flock to predators and this was the only one that survived. I'm keeping her until she can get more chickens. In the meantime I was curious as to what she is. In the picture she is standing next to a Cuckoo Maran. Thank you for the help.

    The pic is way small for my mature eyes, but my guess is possibly a silver phoenix, from that tail, or some type of game bird. Look those up and see if either fits your girl.

    I agree with Donrae, most likely a Silver Phoenix girl, but the pic is a bit small.
