    Based on leg color, and comb type, I'd say EE.

    Hmm. Good question. Does she lay green/blue eggs if so as the person above suggested she may be an E.E.

    If not her body type does look like an Wyandotte to me, and the color, legs, feathers, and tail look game like. It could be possible that she is a Wyandotte Game cross.

    Very pretty hen.

    Quote:She does. Only she is missing the top hat, and right comb type. Neat.

    although, aren't some cream legbars non-crested?
    it could be someone's attempt at trying to recreate a legbar by crossing hatchery or impure brown leghorns, barred rocks, and araucanas...

    Quote:Not sure if they are breeding them that way, but it wouldn't surprise me. However, if this bird is located in the States I wouldn't think it was a Cream Legbar just as they aren't really heard of here, unless I am mistaken.

    true, they really aren't common here.

    she looks to have some brown leghorn in her somewhere though... either through a welsummer or possibly directly...

    not sure what would give that comb though...

    lovely hen though!
