    This is a GLW I got from McMurray, hatched July 12, 2008. So she's 7.5 months old. She was the ugliest baby ever, but has grown into a beautiful girl, and I really love her.

    So I know she's "just" a hatchery girl, and I'm wondering if there's anything correct about her. I think her lacing is really nice. Her back is very broad, though I think it's too long. Her tail seems to come off her body wrong, but it's much nicer than the SLW I got from McMurray. She also seems a bit leggy, but I'm hoping she'll grow out of that. She's really massive compared to the rest of my girls, and runs like an army tank. I love to watch her move!

    I'd like to get more like her, just because they're pretty. I won't be showing. What do you think? Is it worth it to try more McMurray GLW's?

    She is nicely bred, but I like the ones from cackle a lot more.

    I'm not an expert on GLW show qualities, but I can tell you that she is a beautiful bird.
