    Picked this one up as a chick at local feed store, I know it is a bantam but is it a modern game bird? Very long legs and neck on her .She's 7 weeks in this pic. Not sure. I like it, looks like a turkey/chicken.

    Ideas?

    It's a red/black long legged modern game bantam hen. She will get legs about 6"-8" long. The rooster for this breed will have a little darker "brass"y red color neck & a "brass"y red colored back as well. Very friendly chickens. Make real good pets.
