    Ok I just HAVE to say this: That silver laced EE is BEAUTIFUL! Where or how did you get her?! [​IMG] And I also love the lavender giants!(or are they self-blue?) Either way, I love those colors! Maybe you could make a Silver Laced Ameraucana? [​IMG]

    I got that hen from my friend in Simi Valley. She shipped me her birds after she was told she would have to pay $100 a day per bird if she kept them. [​IMG] So she shipped me her 4 chickens. The "Silver Laced" hen is Stripy. I am working on getting a blue wheaton roo for them.[​IMG]

    The Jersey Giants are supposed to be splash. I have some older black hens that will be added to the flock when my roo and his splash hens grow up a little. I also have some older white giant hens. I would love to figure out how to make Lavender Giants. I will have to work on that. [​IMG]

    Oh sorry about the giants! Now that I look at them I see some darker spots. But they are still VERY beautiful! Keep up the good work!​

    I adore bearded ladies and their roo's, they also wear the most beautiful dresses...[​IMG] Like the Hollybawk Chickens...[​IMG]

    I used my black ameraucana looking EE roo over my BLRW hens (3) and got chicks from the beginning of this month's hatch that are looking like BLRW's with the beard and GREEN LEGS!!! I finally have beautiful green legs! Now if I could get a silver/black beauty like your's...

    A side note: If my 101 y/o Irish grandmother were still alive, she'd really smile about the green legs, she and I have very white skinned legs and our green veins always show a big contrast LOL!
    (how shocking!) HA HA, it was in her time, a woman never showed her legs...
