    I have tried to figure out how to do load picture...I am having trouble figuring it out.
    Anyways she layed 20190720_153025.jpg her first egg in front of me. It was small of course but it was blue toned. Every thing I have read said it should be brown.
    Wondering if this happens sometimes? If this picture loads, she is the black and gold big hen.

    She's pretty, and if her legs are green, as the photo seems to show, definitely an EE. Nice bird!

    thank you.
    My husband grabbed 3 mystery birds that we're older at the farm and fleet. I figured out the other 2 ...one a seabrite shown in pic. and the little golden dutch Bahntam hiding at there feet. The 3 will never be apart, they are always snuggling each other.
    The other 3 are Americana (spell?) a Brahma ( first egg today) and a buff Orpington.

    Nice flock! Her coloring is very like a black laced gold Wyandotte, but not her leg color, or her eggs!
