    When I purchased this hen as a chick, I was told she was a banverlder. Now that she's gotten older, she doesn't look like the photos of banvelders I've seen. Any idea on breed?

    Nope, that looks like a Welsummer pullet. Should still give you nice dark terra-cotta colored eggs.

    Yeah...she's coming up on laying. My Wellies took a little longer to mature and lay, but when they started, they laid nearly every day beautiful clay pot colored eggs, with one laying the pretty splotch eggs.

    And yes...she is a Welsummer. You'll be happy with her.
