Hi, I recently rescued a hen. She was the last one left out of 5 chickens who had been abandoned by the previous owner. I have no idea about age, breed or any other information about her what so ever. So far she has been kept inside our house and we have been putting her in a large pen through the day to exercise and scratch around. She will be living outside once we get a couple of other hens for company for her. She is very friendly, follows us around inside and out and likes to sleep on the head rest of our lounge as close to people as she can get. She is more like a cat than any chicken I've ever encountered.
Obvious features are white legs, gold/orange eyes, brownish feathers with white banding or patterning, she has a single row comb and 4 long toes. No feathers on her legs. She doesn't lay eggs as of yet, but seems like a matured hen more than a young one.
Does anyone have any idea what breed she could be? Thank you for any help, I'm new to chickens.

With that barring, maybe a Plymouth Rock cross?

not certain of all the features of a plymouth rock, but she looks like one.
