    Wow that chicken doesnt' even look real - amazing the feather pattern on it. But the chick has black outline on the flight feathers - does that go away? (the adult bird pictured doesn't have that)

    Quote:Yep! Go to [​IMG] and check out the different breeds for yourself. There are so many beautiful birds out there. I think that's why they are so addictive!
    EDIT- My friend has those birds and they are so cute! I love them... they are very sweet little things.

    Quote:I'm not sure. I'm assuming that the adult bird is "show quality" while the chick is hatchery quality. Doesn't change the fact that the little chickie will be a beautiful adult!
