    I'm not sure on her breed, but she could be anywhere from 20-24 weeks old with her comb already turning red. She should be right at point of lay; eggs anytime within the next month, possibly.

    You should be able to measure the width between her legs to gauge how close she is; two finger widths or more distance between the legs should tell whether she is mature or not :)

    I'm guessing she's an off type EE, based on the partridge body, and the slate colored legs. Let us know what color egg she lays. Pretty girl.

    Agree with lazy gardner. Once she lays egg it'll be easier

    Between the pelvic points....... not the legs(unless this is something new [or old] that I haven't heard about.

    Pelvic Points 2 bony points(pelvic bones) on either side of vent:
    Less than 2 fingertip widths apart usually means not laying.
    More than 2 fingertip widths apart usually means laying.


    She doesn't look like an EE to me, light colored legs, no beard or muff, single comb.
    Nothing in the pic for reference but she looks small, maybe bantam<shrugs> maybe some game bird in her??

    Lol @aart are you calling me old? :p

    I guess I need to be more "politically correct" but yeah, that's pretty much what I meant.

    I won't tell mom you called her "old" by her old methods of telling the "lady hens" apart from the "girl hens" by watching them run away and gauging how wide apart their legs were; probably easier for her than chasing all the hens around and having to prod each one in the "nether region" just to find out she'd been catching the same hen over and over hahaha :D

    Ok, yeah, I'm old :p

    haha no meant old technique...guess it follows that if the pelvic points are wider the legs would be too,
    but I've always read to actually touch the pelvic points up on both sides of the vent.

    Looks like a Dutch Game bantam to me. Slightly similar to a brown red pattern.

    I am really curious of the breed though, she bears a slight resemblance to my Buttercups.. If you find out what breed they are @Hamza hensCoop, do update for me? Is she flighty or fairly docile?

    I still haven't had the luxury of probing them, quite honestly lol, but I can see where the pelvic points would be closer in range to age...


    Now I need to go catch and probe a questioning hen :D
