    She is some variety of production red or red sex-link. Which is of course a rhode island red based strain of chickens. Rhode island reds do not have white earlobes.

    She will lay LOTS of beautiful brown eggs!

    What color legs does she have, Blue?

    If there blue she's a Buff Catalanas
    White legs a Buff Minorca
    Yellow legs a Buff Leghorn

    All three of these are about the same breed and will lay a White egg.

    x2 on your guesses and this post. Rhode Island Reds are darker, have a black tail, and red earlobes. Their stance is very different than that, too.

    I looked thesd up and think they are too dark, but a possibility. In the midst of it, I discovered the buff leghorn! They are gorgeous, thank you for the indirect helpfulness.

    She looks a lot like a Buff Catalan or Buff Leghorn to me, or a cross of one or both of those breeds.

    I think she is a Buff Leghorn, Buff Minorca, Catalana, or a mix containing those breeds. Rhode Island Reds/Production reds don't have such large combs, have red earlobes, and have a fuller appearance.
