    she has a white lobe so that would make her neither. Is she a bantam or LF? I would guess brown leghorn X.

    She's not a Welsummer, since they have yellow legs. However, she isn't a purebred Old English Game, either, because she has white earlobes (OEG have red earlobes). She may be an Old English Game/Leghorn mix.

    Old English Game mix. Welsummers have different body type and yellow legs/skin.

    Anyone else wonder if she has some Dorking in her? Does she have 5 toes? The legs look short, but that could be angle. She looks mixed with something, regardless. Doesn't fit any other breed all the way.

    What about a Dutch bantam? They have white lobes.

    Dutch bantams do have white earlobes. However, they have blue slate legs, as opposed to the white legs this hen has. They also have a different body type.

    She looks like an Old English Game mix to me.
