    After a raccoon attack killed one of my girls, I'm down to a lone hen and thinking of getting her a new companion. I'm considering this one at a shelter:

    Looks like the photo was taking Sept 30th. Does anyone know what kind of chicken she is, and if in fact she actually is a she?

    Thanks much!

    that hen might be a American game or it might not she is really pretty i would not want to see her go to the shelter and if you buy her a friend it doesn't have to be the same kind but it would be better for her and you because you dont want to have a really tinny bird with a really giant bird and you might just want to sell her so she might just make more than one friend she would have multiple friends and shed be in a better

    Looks like some kind of game like Aseel, Malay, or Shamo. Not quite sure which.

    They do have chickens in shelters [​IMG] Many are farm sanctuaries who are very choosy as to where the birdies go. I was going to adopt a Golden Phoenix roo one time from a shelter, but I decided it wouldn't be all that wise, considering I have 7 roosters already. [​IMG]

    What kind of comb?? I agree with YOR, that is more than likely an oriental background game fowl. Should be a great bird to add to your flock!

    It looks like a she, and I agree, Oriental background in her. If she's around OK....I want! [​IMG]

    How old is she?
    She could be a Bantam Malay?
    Or as some of the other said Malay or Shamo..

    She isn't American Game!

    tail angle is wrong for a bantam malay or shamo, but head shape is wrong for asil (or malay or shamo)... so I dunno. [​IMG]

    She's an bantam oriental mutt. [​IMG]

    She looks neat, I say take her home.
