    My husband and I ordered the "rainbow layer assortment" this past spring. I have some guess on most of them, but this feather foot has me stumped. What do you think?

    So how long do you think it will take that Dark Brahma to live up to the Assorted Rainbow LAYER package label. How long before it lays ? ? ?

    math ace - They said they'd throw in one "rare breed" straight run. My guess is the feather foot is that one [​IMG]
