    She looks good! And nice first egg!! It'll probably double in size when she maxes out...

    Not bad Legbars either, don't like the floppy comb on him, but seems to be a common issue... mine has a good straight comb but all his sons so far don't compare... :/

    SC, what do you think of the pullet?

    There's a dark hole where that is concerned that needs to be fed every once in a while. I'm done [​IMG]

    She looks good, but you are asking a color blind man to see the difference between blue and green.
    Out of the 14 pullets I have left, I have 4 that look really nice like that. Several of their siblings had yellow shanks, that's why the flock was scrapped, but if that is an example of a good one, I should get some nice OEs. I like her nice coppery hackles. Most of mine either have too much straw color, or are almost totally black.

    The egg isn't hers. It is from one of the local marans eggs that I hatched 22 1/2 weeks ago.

    I think she looks better than my current hens... :gig

    She's the first pure BCM out of mine, so just wanted some outside input... I'm happier than I thought I'd be... really was considering dropping my BCM's... :confused:
