Well either way, don't expect her to lay very soon, and don't expect her to lay much at all. Chances are, she will lay rarely - And when she does, it will be a light brown egg. The chicks will look like her, or if a male, be much darker looking with a taller body set.

No malay there, got you an American Game hen.  The pea comb comes from oriental blood infused into the straight combed bankiva type birds years back.  Pea combed being dominant, she shows this trait, as do many American Game lines.  Green legs usually indicates a "Hatch" family, (name of an old time breeder), but without asking the original breeder all you can do is guess on her bloodlines.

I agree with Prairiechiken, she looks like a hatch hen.

american game (some type of hatch) should lay a medium sized light brown egg

hi i raise game birds and she appears to be what i call a albany game hen but there are many breeds of game birds  that have pea combs but if this is an albany hen you got a very good mother if you decied to raise chicks off of her she would make a great cross with a grey are green legged hatch you can start a great bloodline with either of these breeds      i cant promise you ne thing about this 1 hen but i have been in the game fowl bis for about 10 years and she appears to be very healthly and happy and game fowl hen are very skidish so that normal for them to run from everything
