    Looks like an Easter Egger - I'm guessing a pullet not quite ready to lay.

    She looks to me like a Wheaten Ameraucana pullet. Her face is much to bright to laying unless she is just stressed out. That is just my opinion though. Good luck.

    Easter egger pullet, I'd agree just reaching point of lay, or possibly coming out of a molt and comb is still pale and small. It's really hard to tell age once they're mature.

    Thanks all. I was told she was a Buff Orphington, but I don't think so.
