    This is savannah!! She's broody right now! She was given to me by a lady I met down the street. Kim told me she was a Rhode Island Red. Savannah lays white eggs and is a very sleek,medium small size bird. The more I look at Pics of Rhode Island reds, savannah doesn't look like the breed. She has yellow/ gold, some brown n a green sheen to her. She loves rummaging for bugs more than eating her feed, she's always jumping the fence and is very smart but can be skiddish. I've had her for over 2 years n have no idea what kind of bird she is?!? Please help?!!!![​IMG][​IMG] here's a better pic of her before she went broody!!

    Could she be a brown leghorn?

    She's not a leghorn, leghorns have white earlobes. Interesting she lays white eggs, she could have leghorn in her. Her pattern looks like that of an easter egger. She's a mix; possibly leghorn with EE and maybe another breed.

    From how she looks and how you say she acts, she might be a game hen.

    I was going to say by her feather colour that she was a Danish Brown Leghorn, but as Studio2770 commented she does not have white ear lobes. So I would say a leghorn X???

    I may not be right, but to me she looks like a Welsummer hen. I have a Welsummer that looks exactly like her. She may also be a mixed breed, you never know! Hope this helps!

    Is she a bantam? She could be an Old English Game bantam, or a full-sized Old English Game.

    Thanks for all the feedback!! I will have to check her ears tomorrow morning when I open up the coop to see if she has white ears.
