Meet the Chicken....Silver Cuckoo Marans

This is my Silver Cuckoo Marans.  The Marans breed comes from France. They lay dark brown eggs, almost a dark chocolate to coppery color. I can't wait to see how dark her shells are.

The Silver Cuckoo color is the barred feathers with irregular light and dark bars.  I think she is going to be one of my large girls. Already she is bigger than the Polish and Leghorn. 

I really did not know what to name her and since I have a love of comic books and superheros I decided I needed to name one after one of my favorite, Wonder Women.
So meet, Princess Diana, Amazonian Hen!  Well almost a Pullet not quite a hen yet.

When she was a chick her coloring reminded me so much of a penguin!  She likes to talk to me when I visit.  She doesn't come right up to me but slowly she will investigate, waiting for my hand to come out full of treats!
