    Considering that it's possible lamonas are extinct, it would be almost impossible for you to have one. Your chicken looks, from that picture, like it has white legs so that wouldn't fit with the breed description of lamonas. I think it more likely you have a game bird of some kind.

    My first thought was a Red Pyle Old English Game pullet. She's very pretty!

    Lamona is pure white chicken.There is a guy who recreate them (bantams) but that is not the case with yours.She is OEGB or mixed with this breed

    What do you see that suggests to you she's from a male line? Why a cull?
    She is a Red Pyle OEGB by the way. Not well posed in the picture but looks to have good feather quality. That's very important in OEGBs. I don't think she looks bad at all.
