    Your hen looks like a Black Sex Link. :)

    Where did you get her from? She looks like a mixed breed to me, with no particular breed standing out.

    I agree. Though, she could be a Black Sex-Link with a lot of red and orange.

    The reason I don't think she's a Black Sex-link is that most of her body doesn't look black to me--more like a dark reddish brown color. It may just be the lighting, though. While Black Sex-links can have a lot of orange, the rest of their body is still usually black.

    That what I thought too, I didn't notice the brownish color.

    She's a mixed breed hen.

    It is not uncommon for black sexlinks to have a lot of brown/gold on them. she looks just like one of my girls.

    Since the OP is in Pakistan, it's quite likely not a breed we here in the US would recognize, if indeed it is a breed there. Could easily just be a village type bird, a nice dual purpose layer.
