    Anyone have any idea what kind of hen she might be? I know she has some sort of game bird in her, I am almost certain. She is a very thin and long hen, with long tial feathers too. She is also a great flyer.​

    She looks like my silver duckwing OEGBs (but bigger). I would say she is a silver duckwing old english game

    What color are her earlobes? If red or reddish, she's likely a Silver Duckwing Old English Game. If white, she's a Silver Phoenix. Pretty bird!

    She has whiteish earlobes and lays a cream colored/off white egg.​
