    hi, do you know what breed of chicken she is. I'm thinking Delaware or Sussex but I'm not shure. :)

    Sussex have white legs, Delaware yellow. Looks Sussex.

    I know Delaware are columbian color but they just don't have the same intensity of black hackle as the Plymouth Rock, Sussex or Brahma.

    She may be a Light Sussex. Do you know where she comes from?

    In Canada, a Rhode Island Red x Columbian Plymouth Rock cross ("Columbian Rock X") is extremely popular and one of the few options offered by major hatcheries - hens look exactly like that.

    Based on her leg color and single comb, I would say she is a Light Sussex.

    With respect, it's not a Brahma (although the coloring is like a Light Brahmas) as Brahmas have feathered legs and pea combs.
