    I know that her feathers arent as dark as what judges are going for, but is she in good enough shape and close enough to the standard that she woild place at even local shows? Assuming that there is competition.

    Both of them, Colors, body type, there are a number of things the are indicators.
    This time of the year it is going to be hard to find any hatching eggs. In the spring get a hold of Horstman Poultry http://www.horstmanspoultry.com
