    Looks like a really orange Black Sex-link or some other mix.

    Shes a Black Sex Link since your in the U.K. it could be called a Maran Cuivre Bovans Nera, Black Star, Nera, Rhode Rock or a Black Sex Link.

    She has more of the reddish or copper color in her than most BSL hens, but I agree that she's a Black Sex Link. She's a good breed to have for eggs, as Black Sex Links are egg laying machines. Good luck with Betty.
