    One of my original GFF 2012 hens (not crested.) She finished her first molt to this. Looks a bit short necked in this picture, but she's not. I do like her tail though.

    Yes green band hen had the injured eye. It is still cloudy. She acts more timid now. Still comes for treats but she's the first one in the coop every night, guess since she can't see as well anymore. :( Really meant to quarantine her after the move and treat her eye some more but then I had some babies get sick so the pet carrier (i.e. quarantine pen) has been occupied. Still may try that to see if we can heal it up some more. The carrier should be empty tomorrow night!

    She's beautiful! Yes very lovely tail, hard to tell for sure from this angle but it looks very open in addition to the nice angle. She's got a very nice front underline, too, swoops all the way down to her legs.

    @ Tru, I like those wide feathers in your girls' tail and nice high wing set too!

    My non-crested hen from the original A Line GFF flock had a nice tail too. I noticed two division on the first wave of offspring from the A line.

    One group that have great tails but no crests.

    One group that has crests, but squirrel tails.

    I lost my non-crested hen. I wish I had her back to help work on tails.

    I make that cross all the time. They are VERY hearty chicks. I usually get 100% development and hatch! Sapphire huh....I call them SBEL too.

    Really nice barring - She is a pretty hen. Also for my taste, although it is allowed, I don't like floppy combs, even on females...and hers looks good. Now all you need in your future chicks is a little cresting activity and you're home free!
