    So this morning (literally just a little bit ago) my dad woke me up to come look at a hen in the back yard. She's really pretty and we have no idea where she came from. What do you guys think she could be? I know she's not a game. She's almost the same size as my game rooster.

    I have 2 RIR hens, so I know that's not what this girl is. Thanks for the input though.

    not enough pattern in her for Welsummer, likely a mix. she is a rather unique color.

    Well, it's safe to say that if she starts laying colored eggs then I'll know who she belongs to.

    Looks like a hatchery quality Brown Leghorn to me...earlobe should be more white but I believe that is what she is. If she lays white eggs...you have your answer.
