I purchased my three original hens from a breeder, my second three from a hatchery. The hatchery birds all appear to be exactly what they were supposed to be. The two of the my breeder birds are pretty accurate as well. However, some folks tell me that my Ethel isn't a JG and she was supposed to be. I thought I even met her momma. So, here is a photo. She isn't so much larger than the other gals but she is also still young, 21 weeks, and I hear they don't grow that fast.

She had these amazing Marans.
