Penelope is a very pretty girl that is usually called an Easter Egger, they are mixes that have Ameraucana/Araucana in their background. The hatcheries often sell them as Ameraucana/Araucana. Depending on how they are mixed, they can lay brown eggs.

Easter egger hen. Her straight (ish) comb means she more likely to lay brown or cream colored eggs.

She's an Easter Egger. Many hatcheries mistakenly label them as Ameraucanas or Araucanas, or call them "Americanas" or Araucana/Ameraucanas. Pretty girl! I have an Easter Egger that looks similar.

Thank you everyone for your answers, and yes she's pretty and just as sweet. She lays an egg every day...my only one laying out of my eight hens
