    Hey guys, any help with what this hen's breed is? I'm located in Spain right now, the hen lays white eggs, and is quite small. Thoughts about the breed? Thanks.

    I would say she is a brown leghorn apart from the colour of her legs.... everything else fits.... build and body shape, lays white eggs, feather colour and pattern and big floppy single comb. Maybe the leg colour is an optical illusion

    the legs are definitely grey. Somebody once suggested she could be a penedesenca but those lay brown eggs...

    I would suggest she is probably a cross breed then but with mostly brown leghorn genetics.
