    Looks like a Welsummer to me, or possibly a Welsummer mix. Unless she's a bantam, in which case I would think some sort of Old English Game Bantam/mix. And yes, she's probably between 4 and 5 months of age.

    She also doesn't appear to have the salmon breast of a Welsummer pullet in either photo. Even though some Welsummers have a more subdued breast color, there is a distinct breast color difference from the body and neck. I'm not seeing that in this bird.

    She doesn't fit a Partridge Rock perfectly either, but she could possibly be a mix with that.

    I say a mix.

    Pretty girl. Mutt mixes make good layers and overall healthy birds.
