    Perhaps a black breasted red American game hen? Did the previous owner offer any input as to her breed?

    She said an ameraucana, I am guessing she could be a mix of one or an easter egger however she is smaller than I would have thought she would be by now.

    She is a Black Breasted Red Cubalaya. Her tail feathers are much too long to be any other breed.
