    I'm not sure exactly what your definition of 'nice' is, but it is fairly average barring. Not show quality, but not bad if she came from a hatchery.

    She's a lovely hatchery quality BR hen, nothing wrong with that. I love all my BR hens, both the heritage/show quality types as well as my hatchery progeny.

    Here they are to show the difference in barring for you:
