    Now that I can see the picture on a real monitor instead of my phone, it doesn't quite look like a pure Welsummer. Body is too long and narrow, tail looks too long as well. I agree with others that a game is involved somewhere.

    I don't think it's a welsummer, it has a lot of black on the body..

    Here is a welsummer:

    Looks like an Old English Game but I'm just saying what I think I could be wrong haha but she does look to have some game in her

    Have you considered Barnevelder or a cross of that breed? Any idea what specific breeds were around where you got her? Her front looks Welsummer, but the rest perhaps looks like black sex link or Barnevelder colorations.

    Looks like a mixed breed to me, possibly with some Old English Game or Welsummer in her. Not a purebreed, though.

    She looks like a game cross pullet.

    Has similar qualities to a brown leghorn pullet. Maybe a cross. I also agree it could have some game inside her.
