    Yeah, I agree, she looks like a Dutch bantam. They lay white eggs. Most breeds with white earlobes lay white eggs (there are some exceptions). If she was hatched late summer, then she's approximately 5 months old. She doesn't look red enough in the face to be close enough to laying to say soon. Keep an eye on her though -- sometimes they'll redden very quickly. [​IMG]
