Anyone?

My guess she is a mixed breed of some sort with those legs. She also has red earlobes, which very few white egg layers have.

We think we found it... a "Bresse", which I font think we have here.

Bresse are in the US but they are rare. It does seem to be what she is.

If she is a Bresse she will have Slate colored legs and should lay a Cream colored egg.
