hi, My neighbor needs help identifying a hen. she has a gold/tan/brown body with a gray bum and tail, and she has a black head w/ fuzzy black cheeks. she also has a pale colored crown. What is she?

The fuzzy cheeks make me think she's an easter egger. They come in a large variety of colors, and usually have green legs and a pea comb. Is she full-size or bantam?

peachy colored legs can still be an easter egger. they're considered mutts (though they're wonderful mutts), and their legs can really be any color. they are usually green, but not always.
