If there's a small lump of flesh [the uropygium] at the end of her spine she will eventually grow a tail.
If not she is rump-less which is a genetic anomaly for this breed.

Hahaha...I'd name her Pigskin LOL!!!

I've noticed that alot of Leghorn chickens seem to be missing the coccyx as well. (Bones for the tail.)
