Good evening! We recently rescued a chicken from a neighbor and no one seems to know what breed this is. I’ve referenced my chicken books and still stumped. She has very bright yellow feet with several different types of feathers. Iowa Blue, maybe? Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

It looks kind of Dorking like to me, but I don't think they have yellow legs?

It could actually be a hatchery-quality Silver Dorking pullet. That being said Dorkings should have five toes and white legs. I think she only has four. Which might not be unheard if she was from a hatchery.

The pattern is very clean for her to be a mix. And she has a consistent type. None of her features are over stated to imply she's the result of a cross. She could be a Leghorn. I'd think her comb would be larger at that age, but I don't know. @The Moonshiner might be able to weigh in on her potential Leghorn-ness.
