This one is so different

This hen is so different. I probably shouldn't have her in the breeding pen, but I do

She really is very pretty, Susan. I can see her bright yellow leg peeking out underneath her. It looks like she has the right colored eyes too? :love:

Re: This one is so different

She is pretty, I bet Lindy Lou's girl from me must be similar too.  The pullet looked like she'd turn out like that, but the black was all grey on her at 8 weeks or so when I last saw her.  :love:

Re: This one is so different

Yep she looks a lot like the hen Paula picked up here except yours has nice yellow legs.  Paula's is an egg laying machine.  She was hatched in 2010 and is just moulting now.  She laid huge eggs too and there was one of her eggs in the nests almost every single day since she started laying.

Re: This one is so different

The pullet from you Claire is much greyer than Susan's. As a matter of fact I call her Lady Jane Gray.

Re: This one is so different

Finally had a chance to take a picture of "gubi's girl", her feathers have all come in after her molt.  She looks a lot like yours Susan.

Re: This one is so different

She looks a lot nicer then when she left here.  I should have sent a couple more to the Flat Rock Farm resort!  I miss her huge eggs she laid almost every day for more then a year with out a break.

Re: This one is so different

Well she is a sweetie and has started to lay her nice big eggs again.  I have to laugh the other girl is a lot like Claire's hen "Driveby" if she sees I have food she comes running, grabs it and goes off to eat it away from the others :funny:

Re: This one is so different

What a pretty hen! She is certainly the nice big EO shape with dense bloomers.  I love that colour!

She's lovely Paula! The one I have here though is even darker though on the black parts. Will have to get a pic of her to post here. Her dark areas are so black!
