    Judging from that picture, it looks like you've got yourself a brown leghorn hen.

    That's not a Leghorn, it looks like a Welsummer.

    With due respect for both posters I don't think it's either a Brown Leghorn or a Welsummer as both breeds have yellow legs and the hen in question appears to me to have slate legs.

    Not the right color or build, Blue Orpington.

    I do agree, the hen doesn't have white earlobes in that pic.

    Perhaps a better picture? I had to really eyeball her legs, her feet are a pale yellow color. Her grey feathers on her legs are in the way.. but look at her toes.

    This one looks like a Blue Orpington.

    I would like to see a better photo of the legs. They just don't look yellow to me in the photo but it's definitely not a great pic for viewing them. If a better photo shows that the legs are yellow, then I agree it's a Welsummer with those red earlobes.
