I was told she is a buff orpington cross bantam-she is called "Bitsy",i have had her nearly a year now,the previous owner had her for about the same so she must be 18 months or older.usually she is a very good egg layer!

Specks on the left I purchased from Cambridge poultry last july and she was at point of lay then.

here hoping and keeping my fingers crossed!xx
