Hi, can anyone help identify what breed / crossbreed this chicken possibly is?

It has some similarities to a Buff Sussex I thought. It came with a batch of Barnevelder chicks purchased from a hatchery, the other chicks are Barnevelders but obviously this one is not a Barnevelder. Could it be a Barnevelder cross?

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

definitely a cross, the white legs could likely mean sussex in her breeding

Looks like a Buff Sussex cross, and the bird up the back is a Welsummer by the looks of it.

She is not unlike some of my Wheaten Marans X (mine are French, this would be English as the legs are not feathered).
Love the tipping on the feathers.
