    She lays six creamy pinkish-brown eggs a week and is the boss of the flock. I got her from friends where two bigger hens were picking on her. The white patches among her feathers are where they really got into her, though I think she was in a moult, too. Everything is growing back. They weren't sure of her breed. If any of you can tell, I would love to know! Thank you so much.

    That makes sense to me. She's a great layer, and she looks like the hens in the google search I did for Red Star. Thank you for your help!

    I agree with ChickenLover89. She looks just like some of my girls.

    Thank you!! She's a great layer, though a bit of a bully to some of the smaller birds in the flock.
