    Provided I am still convinced in 6 weeks that she really is a hen, the name sticks!

    Take a picture of her front side, too, when you get a chance. I'm honored to have a chick named after me. It's better than calling her Cynthia (which my friend, Ellie, did, btw). [​IMG]

    Quote:Kate she is a mutt. I am in awe that a chick from my flock came out looking like that. Clearly white leghorn other, but the roos are blue wheaten ameraucana, and a silkie roo. Some ressesive gene somewhere.

    Mine are mutts too, I don't know whose parents my girls are. They are about 2 months apart in age but look like twins! I'll try and get picks of them tomorrow for you.
