    everyone has a different opinion -- personally I really like the patchwork / calico feathering on this chook; I think she is lovely (am assuming this is a pullet)

    Oh, I think the small gold/brown one is a cutie....just don't have a clue what it is! It is the black and white one in the background that is so ugly. My neighbor laughed so hard when he saw poor black and white roo!

    black and white one reminds me of the way white patching shows up in cats === has been described as what would happen if the cat jumped into a puddle (or pail) of milk === on feet, chest, and splashed up partly on the back and/or face

    I dunno, I am in love with EEs -- so I appreciate the "different" chickens -- and to my eyes, that roo is quite good looking; would be interesting to see what his offspring might look like

    [​IMG] Baymule-LOVE your breed descriptions especially after the PERPETUAL EE/mutt/mongrel debate and the hatchery debate which runs amok everywhere. As refreshing as a fountain coke!
