    She might have some Delaware in her, but it is hard to be sure what breeds went into a cross. She may be a cross of already mixed birds.

    Mixed breed, possibly with Light Sussex or Columbian Rock in her.

    The pic is not great, but her legs look yellow to me in the pic, so I would say she's likely a Columbian Rock mixed breed.

    She's mixed enough no specific breed stands out. Abut all I can say for sure is her parents were probably yellow legged and straight combed.
