"The Cream Legbar is an autosexing type of chicken. This means that you can tell the sex of the chick at hatch, and they breed true. The Cream Legbar originated as a cross between Brown Leghorns and Barred Rock with some Araucana blood in them."
So a guaranteed hen - and they lay blue eggs! Very appropriate too because they are a mix of LayLa's breed with a little bit of Shelldon's blood. I hope the timing works out!

It's hard to say if the chickens know that Shelldon is gone. Today they went about their business but last night EggBerta was the last one in the run at night and I believe she was looking for her "son". The rooster was always the last one in for the night making sure his ladies were safe and sound. I'm looking forward to visiting him next week, but overall I'm happy that he's gone and glad that he is in a safe place where he can happily live his days!
