    I took in this poor lost chicken one of my neighbors found in her yard. Anybody have any guesses as to her breed and age just by looking? Thanks!

    It looks like a female. Not sure of the breed. She looks around 15 weeks, her comb is the same size as mine was then.

    shes a american gamefowl... so flyingmonkeypoop had it right to some extent as American gamefowl are crosses of a little bit of everything (oriental, Spanish, etc.. gamefowl)

    A shot of her standing up would help too, to see how she holds her wings and all.

    American Game Hen, looks to be adult age but still young.
    She will be a great mom for you to raise babies under.
    She is a asset to have in any flock large or small . Shes worth her weight in eggs hatching eggs that is.
    She has a pea comb.

    American game, good call ya'll. Not an Old English since they are all straight combed fowl.
