    I have this hen and I am not sure what breed. Can anyone help me?


    i don't think its a rooster because it doesn't crow or have those extra claws. and she's very nice. i'm a little worried though, she hasn't laid any eggs and we've had her for about a week.

    Sorry to say...it looks like a rooster. How long have you had it? It's a pretty bird, either way!

    well, it has a cuckoo pattern, as for breed [​IMG] Was wondering if it's laying eggs... kind of looks like pointy saddle feathers, and 2 sickle feathers sticking up? Also looks like "she" has pointy feathers at the neck...If she's for sure laying eggs wonderful for you!! How old?

    Wanted to say [​IMG] and sorry for telling you on your first post that I think your hen is a He...

    Looks like a roo to me and the color is what I call Crele.
    Maybe look at a Crele Old English Game and compare the two.
