    Hi guys, so this is my neighbors lone chicken that likes to just wander around the neighborhood, and I kind of feel sorry for it.

    So what breed is it?

    Looks like a mix, probably with some game breed.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking in regards to the game part of it. Any ideas what it might be a mix of?

    Probably has American Game or Old English game in it.

    So I looked around tonight and think this might be what she is, Wheaten Old English Game Fowl, some of the photos I came across where just like her, but she looked a little lighter.
    But here is a question, because of the game part of the chicken do you think she will bother my girls when I get them or would that just be the males that would do that? Like would she jump the fence and go on the attack?

    Game hens can be aggressive, but not to the scale of the roosters.
