    I know she is nice but I would like to have some constructive criticism of this 10 month old pullet. Are there any areas where she falls short of the standard? I don't have any feet pictures but she does have correct toes and foot feathering.

    So nobody has any criticism? After all, there is no perfect bird. How about her cushion? Could it be a little more poofy?

    I agree she could use more cushion but at ten months it might still fill in a tad more. Two things I see, her tail is a little low but that might change as she matures. The last thing, I'm old school, I want to be able to see the eyes.

    But she is young yet and could be a completely different bird a year from now. I know some of mine have amazed me by being so, so at a year but then boom! They blossom.
