    We'll need a better photo to ID the bird -- a photo taken in natural lighting from the side with the bird in a natural, standing position is best.

    X2. :) If she's really small, she's probably a bantam of some sort.

    Looks like some type of gamebird or gamebird mix. They're probably the most common breeds to go missing, end up living in the wild, and get found by another poultry person.
