Best hen we own!

Pros: Lays very well and her eggs are HUGE!

Cons: None!

Our A.W. is 3 years old now and is still laying better than our yearling hens! She lays through the winter (with a coop light on) and has the most lovely personality. When she was young we named her "Nugget" because she matured so fast we thought she was a cockeral. When we found out she was a pullet, we were super excited because of the great personality she had! She'd always follow us around, talking to us, and even seemed to enjoy being pet. We now call her "Nuggita" and she is a flock favorite! She has escaped many dog/ cat/ skunk attacks when no one else in the flock did. Smart girl!

Wow she sounds like a special hen !!
 
I would certainly want to raise some out of her ....  you have been given a real gift  and we don't get many of these opportunities in life . 
If i were you i would want to find a good rooster of her breeding(this is best) ..... (or a good rooster of similiar breeding and type) and put them together and raise a flock of them -- then save the best rooster out of these and breed him back to her(if you decide to do this i will tell you more) .
 
But , what is a "Amber White" ? How are the bred ? "my email address"(woodside101@andycable.com) 
Thanks for any info ,
