Crossbreed. Hard to tell what her make up is as she hasn't got any distinctive type or colour.

Denis is certainly correct but I think I can narrow it down a bit. Crossbred between a Croosbred and a Crossbred, and the grandparents were probably of similiar parentage. That's not to say it not a nice bird, just that to assign what breeds are in it's make up is pure guess work at the best.
