I've noticed that Urch birds have several admirable qualities. 1) Their combs tend to be uniform and classically pea-type. 2) Urch birds tend to the red spectrum of "Mahogany Bay"-- think of a fine piece of 'flame' mahogany and you have a general idea of the gradation of color. The color tends to appear highly saturated on Urch birds which may be largely due to the fact that so many Urch birds have a good slate bar. 3) Of all the Urch birds I've seen (and I've seen a few), I've noticed on the hens and pullets a tendency for great skull structure and nice type-y square outlines to their bodies.
