    New polish pullet... the guy that sold her to me tried to pass her off as a "Splash" wrong...
    But I had driving 45 minutes so I wasn't going to go back home empty handed.

    I'm HOPING it's a PULLET!!

    Looks Spangled to me too. I have Silver laced and they look different...it looks like my S S Hamburg with a top hat. LOL

    I used to be really into Australian Shepherds. When all over to buy them. You'd drive three or four hours to pick up a dog, after having spoken with the owner for hours... Get there and the dog is nuts or color is all wrong.

    Beautiful, beautiful bird you have, though!!!

    Thanks!!

    Check out the Bearded Buff Laced... probably not as spectacular... we call her Big Bird.

    Wonder what the progeny will look like for the two of them when mated with this feller.
