Blah.. I was afraid of that. As long as they have the beards im ok with that..

they make beautiful birds with colorful eggs, that's why they are so popular, i'd venture to say the most popular/most sold chick the last few yrs.

I just love the beards.. My Penny is an EE/PBR mix and she is so cute. She lays military green/ dark olive eggs. Love that. Hubby is a retired Marine and he likes it too.

my Salmon Faverolle have much nicer beards then my Ameraucanas, Araucana or Easter Eggers, might be worth looking into if you're into the beards :yiipchick
