    I thought she was a Brown Leghorn, however I was told that Leghorns don't have crests. Someone said she could be a Legbar? :/
    Please, help me figure out what breed she is.

    It looks to me,that she has some leghorn in her.

    Now,I have never saw legbars,so I'd need pictures.

    But,she definitely looks mixed (Barnyard mix).
    She also looks like she's got some game fowl in her...

    She could ( maybe ) be a Cream Legbar/Brown Leghorn cross. I had a pullet ( that same cross ) looked very similar her ....... Until the neighbor's dog got her and her cage mates. I would expect her ear lobe to be whiter, unless she is very young.

    Her ear lobe is very white, although the pictures don't show it very well. :p
    She is about two years old.

    She looks a lot like that, except her back is much lighter.

    She looks like she may be a Brown Leghorn mix to me, too.
