    Hello, so I came home from work today and the 2 random chicken has gotten into my coop. I think someone in the neighborhood is putting them in there. Any advice on what she is? 16009737465754665958409619820503.jpg

    Sorry, but I'm laughing. I can imagine your shock coming home to find two new residents. At least whoever did it cares enough to make sure they're safe.

    She looks to be some sort of game bird. And she looks to be young.

    Someone might pop in who has a better idea of her breed.

    It's a game cross for sure, if she is younger than six months you may have to wait a bit to sort out the coloration. Nice healthy looking bird.

    She looks a lot like some of the village chickens around here, which are some type of gamefowl or game cross.

    That red and black on the wings is intriguing.

    She’s a pretty little thing! I suppose congratulations are in order?!
    Maybe the neighbors have found them roaming and just assumed they were yours???

    At any rate I can’t imagine my reaction to that kind of a surprise! Ha!

    These feathers are from our ginger cockerel.
