    When we got these chicks we thought they were easter eggers (see pic in one of my older posts)...they came with a pullet rainbow pack from Meyer Hatchery. We have 23 hens of various breeds, and one rooster (a buckeye). I have two hens like this one, and two that look very similar, but the lacing pattern is a little lighter. They are 25 weeks old. I have no idea which color egg she lays. We get an average of 16 eggs per day, of all varying shades of brown, and some white (we have 5 white leghorns).

    Is this a barnevelder?

    Yes! Very pretty! She looks like she'll lay for you over the winter. I wouldn't expect an egg anytime in the next few weeks. Next few months probably.
