    Whats up with her head? Is she crested? It looks that way in the picture. If she is crested then I would say she is a mixed breed.
    But, if she isnt, how many toes does she have? If she has 5 on each foot, I would say a silver grey dorking hen. I had two and they were wonderful birds.

    I have seen Old ENglish Game "Toppy" fowl that looked like this. If she lays colored eggs, she may be an Easter Egger/Americana cross. Is she standard size or bantam?

    She sure is a pretty little girl, I love those little crests. She even has a nice body shape, but I have no clue what she is, other than a mix.

    How wonderful of you to rescue her![​IMG]

    Looks to me like a Polish x Brown Leghorn. She's got the body, small crest, single comb, silver duckwing color, and leg color to fit it.
