    She (Miss Kay) is a feral chicken we picked up off of Farm Street in Bastrop, TX where the chickens roam free. Trying to figure out her breed. We actually have 2 of them. She just had babies. The Roo is a Blue Laced Wyandotte. Some of the pictures aren't very good, so I included several.[​IMG]

    She's got a lot of game hen in her, but looks mixed with something heavier.....don't tell her I said this [​IMG], but she's on the hefty side for a game hen

    What about 1/2 game hen and 1/2 Toppy? Is there such a thing? Keep looking up breeds and that is what I came up with. I wish I could load the video done about Farm Street, the Chicken Sanctuary in Bastrop, Texas, but I can't seem to save it or make the link work. [​IMG]

    This looks a lot like her....Going to have to do some investigative work on just what a Toppy is.[​IMG]

    She appears to be a Game hen mix.

    That video is interesting, hope they get something passed to preserve/protect the chickens, it's kinda like the Key West ones etc. Think Toppy means a strain(s) that has/had crests, there are pictures on BYC of some of them, ie, https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/106767/show-off-your-games/5740 there are a lot of pictures on various websites, mostly fighting ones, apparently the most popular strain was claibournes

    Toppy is a type of crested game bird. But she does look to be at least part game.
