    I got the eggs from a guy who said they were game bird chickens. Only 1 hatched. This is her and I have no idea what she could be. Pheasant? Chicken? Or...??

    I can't get a hold of the guy who gave me the eggs. They got to me through a friend of a friend kind of thing and this guy doesn't even have a phone. Weird.

    Cannot ID that chick at this age. It could be any number of things. "Game bird" includes a slew of different things.

    It looks like the typical "Black Breasted Red" color that is common in Game chickens.
