    I rescued 4 hens who were being neglected and I have no idea what breed this one is. Her colors are beautiful so I've named her Starburst.

    She looks like an Easter egger. Hopefully you get colored eggs from her [​IMG]

    The white hen in front looks like a white Leghorn, a great layer of nice white eggs.

    Oh I would love to have an Easter egger but she lays large brown/tan eggs not colorful ones.
    The white Leghorn was one I rescued with this one along with a bantam Cochin and a large brown hen that I have identified yet.

    Easter Eggers can lay just about any color egg, that's why they are called Easter Eggers. You never know what color egg a pullet will lay until she actually does start laying.

    Bummer about the brown eggs. Well, at least she's laying, that's a bonus!

    There seems to be a consensus that she's an Easter egger so that must be what she is. Thank you guys for all your help, maybe I'll get another one that will lay colored eggs.
