    It's a barred rock, no doubt.

    With the comb and muffs/beard, and coloring it does look like a mix of a barred/cuckoo breed and an EE/Americauna/Araucana.

    Looks like an EE with some maran or barred rock cross in its ancestry. I have a similar young cockerel

    (In the back) the only difference is how faint the barring on yours is, probably just washed out from cross breeding. I bred a BRx rooster to an EE hen and got mine, yours is probably a similar story. :)

    What color eggs will it lay? She is 4 1/2 months old... Will she lay soon?

    There is a good chance she will lay blue/green eggs, but no way to know for sure since you don't know her ancestry for certain. She looks like she is still a little ways off from laying, a month or so I would guess.

    If there's a pea comb, then she has a very good chance of green eggs. Possibly olive colored eggs too.

    It's simply a mixed breed bird with barring or cuckoo in the ancestry, and Easter egger back there somewhere.The straight comb really cuts down the chances of a blue or green egg, you'll probably get cream or light brown. Looks like eggs aren't far out from redness of the comb.
