    My Leghorn has something called 'color-bias'. I learned this in another thread when I posted that my hen had killed her brown (EE) babies--2 of them. I was horrified. Swore I'd never let her hatch another egg........

    But I gave in! I limited her to only 3 eggs; and only other leghorn eggs.

    Sunday after Church I went out and found one had hatched--moments before. It was still in the bottom half of the egg! Fortunate for me--and her--cause look!!
