    Quote:Thanks Cyn! I really like her. She's going to go in my Olive Egger pen and be crossed with a blue wheaten Ameraucana. Should be very interesting. I'm trying to hatch some more like her, but alas...everything has been boys! [​IMG]

    I like her looks much better than many Del crosses I've seen. And her poufy cheeks make her even prettier.

    All of her brothers look just like her, but the boys never have the poofy faces like her. She's a real sweetheart, too.

    We were rather shocked when she hatched out chocolate brown then developed this barring/lacing thing. I love your girl! Makes me more likely to hatch out more Del/EE or Ameraucana crosses.

    I call those my DelEEWare's .Mine you have to really look to see if they are my pure Dels or not..but all my crosses have the cheeks...makes them cuter [​IMG] We have had them hatch with rose combs and single combs but so far all have laid pretty green eggs.We have sold all but one from this years chicks Fluffy got to stay.Going to swap it for next year Del hens with my EE or Ameraucana boys
