    I originally got Lucky chicken a hatchery easter egger by accident from the feed store, you may remember her if not you can read her story here https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=133142 . I added her into my Cuckoo Marans pen and I hatched and kept a a Cuckoo pullet from that cross. Her name is D(stands for daughter). Once D was old enough I put her in with my Black Copper marans pair and hatched and kept a cuckoo baby from that cross, her name is DD(Daughter's Daughter).

    Today DD laid her first egg, a cute little dark green egg. Pretty exciting!!

    I snapped a picture of all three generationsÂ’ eggs. Kindof neat to see the progression of color.....
