    Your hen is definitely an Easter Egger. EEs are now the most common chickens in America. Hatcheries churn out thousands of them per year by crossing Ameraucanas, which lay blue eggs with brown egg laying breeds to produce hybrids (EEs) that lay eggs in colors other than just blue. If you are not familiar with the difference, there is a good article at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html explaining the difference between Ameraucanas, Araucanas, and Easter Eggers.
