    I recently got a lil' magpie, Penelope. After reading the breed standard, that I could find, I wanted to get some critiques on her. I do not think she is show quality but would like to know her faults... at least in coloring. She is only just short of 2 months old.

    Here are some photos.

    Any insight/ additional info would be wonderful, Thinking of ordering some Magpies from Holderread for show/pleasure. Also some info on registering/ shows around the NW MO area would be great.

    p.s. excuse her diaper, she is an avid "house duck" and a true joy.

    Thanks!

    I don't see a diaper, doesn't it have to come across her back?

    It is a specially made duck diaper. it goes up her back but it is hidden by her feathers.
