    Some of you may remember, I thought this Blue Orp. might be my rooster. Nope, she is a beauty though. Here she is today on such a beautiful fall day.

    Her name is Hyacinthe.

    Now that looks like a nice healthy bird! Good job. As I see the many breeds of birds with the blue, I must say they are my favorite. Thanks for sharing your little girl!

    Thanks, everyone. She is a great bird. She is the largest but the most demure of the group.... a gentle giant, so to speak.

    Joe, you can get one like her from Speckeled Hen. Hyacinthe comes from her flock. I got the egg and Lacy my Golden Laced Cochin hatched her along with three barred rocks. Thanks for realizing her beauty... a man with a good eye!! LOL
