Meet the chicken...Cream Legbar

I have been getting some great ideas for names.  Lets keep going!

The Legbar is a rare British breed created in 1945.  They have a single comb and lay between 180-200  blue to blue-green eggs.

The most colorful chick of the flock.  She was the first to start getting feathers.  I really love the black stripe coming from her eyes.  Reminds me of the old Cleopatra movies!  

I really wanted to get this breed because of the blue colored eggs.  Plus I know she is a hen because this is an autosexing breed.  Autosexing means the chicks have different color markings for boys and girls. I wish all breeds were autosexing!

This is what she will look like when she is feathered out.
 ...and yes she needs a name too.  Any suggestions? Please!
