    She's from the "rare egg layers" selection but I can't seem to find a satisfactory match. Thanks for your help!!

    Assuming it is Meyer Hatchery.. This is what their rare egg layer collection consists of:
    Ancona, Easter Egger, Andalusian, Wyandotte, Dark Cornish, Delaware, Dominique, Jersey Giant, Brahma, Partridge Rock, Light Brown Leghorn, Hamburg, Sussex, German Spitzhauben Appenzeller, Buckeye, Sumatra, Cochin, Polish, Marans, Campine, Lakenvelder, Faverolles, Buttercup, Welsummer, Exchequer Leghorn, Sultan, or Penedesenca.

    Going with EE since I see a beard.

    I was going to guess something silver, but maybe Exchequer Leghorn if the chest down is yellow.

    Yes, she's from Meyer's. I was think Light Brown Leghorn but now I'll have to check your suggestions and look at her chest down and beard!
    Thanks guys.
