Anyone Have Black Sumatras?

  1. [​IMG] Well anyone?

    My DS has one Black Sumatra sexed pullet named Speeder to raise to show at a county fair this summer and she is the most homely, almost downright ugly little chick. She's tiny compared to the others (I know she will be, it's her breed) but she just isn't as feathered as them and never has been... She's 6ish weeks old right now. Will this ugly duckling (err chicken) grow up and be better looking? Is it normal for her to be so funny looking right now?
    He's certainly not going to get a ribbon with her if something doesn't start happening LOL She needs a chicken makeover! [​IMG]
