    This is Ebony. She is very small....with a stupid sized hair style. I'm wondering if she would be considered good quality or poor quality. She doesn't have the feathers down her middle 'longest' toe which I've heard is desirable. Any opinions? She's quite a dark black colour. [​IMG]

    She's a pretty girl. But you are correct she does have very sparse foot feathers. Breed her to a roo that has excellent foot feathering and the offspring will have improved foot feathers.
