What sort of hen is this?

I've been given a hen (by a total stranger, people can be very nice). Just wondered if anyone would like to make a guess at the mix of parentage?

She laid an egg in the box on the way home and another outside the door of the old chicken ark. She flies out of the henhouse on stilts and maybe will learn to fly into it one day soon.

There`s Indian Game in there somewhere.

Just what I was thinking. What colour egg?

Cream. I think definitely Indian game in there.
leggy

Pretty looking.

Definitely some asian game genes.
I was thinking more like Ko Shamo than Indian IMHO (& I've not kept either) yours is a little to upright for Indian.

Could be. She put herself to bed tonight. Smile

She does, but she isn't. They have become too tame and have to be removed from the house far too often. They will be a problem when we move our meals out into the garden.
