    This is my Cynthia. She has decided to hop my fence and lay in the weirdest place. [​IMG] Well, I guess she knows what she is about!!

    And her egg is actually green, but it doesn't show very well in the picture.

    Cute pictures. Cynthia sure looks like a bard rock, but with a green egg, she must be an EE.

    She is. She has a barred rock daddy (Speckled Hen.... Cynthia's Dutch) and I can't remember her mama's name, but Cynthia will probably chime in. I believe that is why she goes and lays eggs in weird places... all of my EE's have had their share of that. Could be because they are a little "wilder" than the domesticated bird.

    I have a chicken that looks just like her but she is Dark Blue/Black color.
    I mean they could be twins they look so much alike!
    Mine's name is Julia.

    I always forget how beautiful Nora is until I see her picture again. My Cynthia is a pretty girl, but mostly quirky, lol. [​IMG]

    Yep, you guessed it, she is Cynthia's namesake in honor of her sending me "emergency eggs" all the way from Georgia to California when I have a broody hen waiting!!!
