    Trying to learn as I go on this. Guy told me these were "Bovan" hens. Approximately 14 months - productive egg layers. Yes?

    That's the first one I have seen. I have noticed them being mentioned but, no photos at the time.

    Your hen is a red sex link. It's really impossible to say what their origins/specific strain are once they've left the hatchery. Bovans are (I think) a member of the ISA family,

    She should be a fantastic layer!
