    I'm wondering if Snow my solid white Ameraucana hen is a SQ bird? If she's SQ I'd want to enter her as a SQ bird in future shows.

    How's her leg color and sole color?

    The comb is a bit wrong, should be very straight and even, and her face has a very compact shape almost like a Cornish or Asil would (minus the brow) Beyond that there's hardly much judging with a photo that just shows the face and neck. [​IMG]

    Outside the show, she's a very beautiful hen regardless of quality!

    I dont see a full beard in the picture so may not be "show" quality as a amerecauna, but a nice looking hen that probably could be entered in the easter egger catagory! Do you know what color her eggs are?

    How old is she in the picture?

    Quote:There is no Easter Egger category [​IMG] The beard obviously has been plucked, which just makes her ineligible for any show.
