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.

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.

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.
