    She is a Salmon faverolle - they are generally very mellow and extremely good setters and mothers.

    I dont know if she is a good mother because she dont lay eggs I cant let her out with the other chickens because she gets picked on really bad and she is afraid of the other hens so she has her own pen that they cant get into when it rains she turns into a house chicken she is super mellow though

    Salmon faverolle. She looks too young to lay, from that comb.

    Her comb and face is red I thought she was probably pretty young but I also thought that maybe it would not get any darker I have australorp that has been laying for a few mo. Now and just got her comb in and then another australorp the same age who's face is completely red with a full comb in fact I thought she was a rooster before I actually got a rooster and saw what they look like
