Looks like a Golden Laced Wyondotte.
Yep, she’s a golden Laced Wyandotte, her name is Goldie.
UPDATE: so my leghorn pullet will squat down when I pick her up when she’s in the coop and their small run, but doesn’t squat when I try to pick her up when she’s out free ranging. Does this mean she’s close to laying?
And, thanks for the update.
I just realized that if she’s close to laying I won’t be able to eat the eggs because I just recently had to worm my chickens.
Awww, bummer! You can "blow" them though, right? Using the toothpick method where you don't actually put your mouth on the egg?
I’ve never heard of that. What exactly is it?
I don't know where to find the post or who posted it, but they said to use a toothpick to make a hole in one end, then use the toothpick to jab upward to break the yolk. Holding the egg so the hole is at the bottom, keep jabbing and let the contents drain down the toothpick until it is empty. I have not tried it myself yet, but apparently your fingers do get kind of messy and you should have a bowl under the egg, of course. This way you only have one hole in the egg. It sure sounds worth a try!
