Isabella is 5 weeks old and I'm not sure what breed she is. Can anyone help?

Great. Thanks! This is the kind that lays different colors of eggs, right? Does each bird lay one color? Or can a single hen lay more than one color?

Each bird will lay just one color egg, though the color tends to fade as the season progresses.

She looks to have a pea comb and has a good chance of laying blue or green eggs. A hen lays the same basic color egg over her lifetime, although the shade can vary a bit. But a bird that lays green eggs will always lay green eggs, not blue or brown.
