    Here is my girl Bonnie. I realise that her hackles are a different color but what about her body? I think she may loose the barring along her back and shoulders as there is much less of it now than there used to be. I really don't know the difference between blue and lavender, maybe someone can post comparison photos to help me tell the difference. I thought she was blue, hence the name "Bonnie Blue" but I really don't know.

    The color in the photo is really close to being true, she really is unusual (at least in my flock!) Can anyone help with color identification, please?

    Thanks ya'll!

    Crash, if she ends up looking like your EE, I will be thrilled! That is a beautiful hen. Is she blue, or does the lighting just make her look sort of salmon colored? For some reason she makes me think of a seashell. If she were mine, I would name her Shelly. LOL! What is her name and what color egg does she lay?

    Her name is Jacky, and she lays a really deep green colored egg. she is also the biggest one of them all at 7 1/5 lb.
