Our girls are 7 months old on the 16th.
We knew nothing when we got the chickens, but have figured out what most of them are. We have one black minorca that is the sweetest thing ever. My son is in 4H and wants to show her. I am wondering will they DQ her if her comb isnt flopped? And will it flop maybe when she is a little older? What are some of the breed standards for Minorcas?

Here are some pics of Miss Priss




her she is younger



thanks

I'll PM! LOL!

White feather in the plumage is one. Side sprig on a comb is another, along with feathers on the feet.

Pullets of that age rarely EVER have the flop in their comb so I would not worry in the least bit on that.

White in the face is undesirable, but it happens as the bird ages. Too much white and it's a DQ. (I'm talking could be mistaken for a poor WFB Spanish.)

Dark eyes are a plus, but many come with the color that Miss Priss exhibits. It's just something that happens.
