Blue Egg

I have a little black Auracana bantam that I raised from an egg hatched by a broody hen last year.

My little Auracana is called Amy, named for another famous Amy with a black beehive hairdo. She has a photocall tomorrow, meanwhile - here is her first egg, with others laid by her companions for contrast.


  1. Lovely photo...Amy's egg is so pretty.

  2. Isn't, and she's quite a character as well, a lively, curious little bird.

    More people should keep bantams, it's easy, they're fun, the eggs are incomparably better than shop ones, and they teach children about where food actually comes from.
