    Also, I have no experience with Bredas but I know some about them, but most hens start laying at 5 to 6 months. Mine started laying a week apart, and they were just about to turn 5 months old. I have a Marans and a Barred Rock.

    3 months is WAY too young to lay eggs! Most breeds start around 25-30 weeks, aka 6 months.

    All Bredas /should/ have feathery legs, but I guess some don't make the standard.
    I'm pretty sure that they're the only chickens without combs. So she could be a breda mix.
