Need to see a picture as "plain brown hen" covers a lot of territory.

I did look through the breeds section and have almost positively identified her as a Star.

Yes that should be a Red Star (white trim, lacing)...possibly Production Red if not much white at all or tail is black trimmed.

 

Feet and legs should be yellow if that is the case (look dark in the photo but could be due to lighting).

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Further towards her tail she has much more white throughout her feathers. I'm not sure if by yellow legs you mean bright yellow as they are more of a pale/ white but not pure white.

She is definitely one of those two breeds, however she does have quite a bit of white on her chest and her tail.
