    Hello everyone i was wonderingly my magpie girl would be considered a true magpie or do you think she is mixed? She is reasonably smaller in shape then my rouens but I think she may have too much black? What do y'all think? She is precious either way lol

    I could be wrong but I think that they are supposed to have predominantly white heads with two black patches. Also, I believe they have orange legs. But it has been awhile so I could be wrong. She is a cutie though. :clap

    She most likely is a Magpie but has way to much black and not enough white. Just a nice Pet Quality bird. [​IMG]

    I thought she had too much black lol she is still a cutie to me lol I just got her not to long ago(for free from a friend) and she said she was a magpie(never had em before) so I googled them and she just looked like she had way too much black compared to the ones I saw. Oh well she can be my daughters duck and not be in the pure pen I'll put her with the rescues that my daughter has as pets:)
