    Looks like a blue with come copper, which I believe is a disqualification or a fault for show. The lacing is pretty good, though. She *may* molt out of the copper.

    I was hoping that I was right when I saw her today. I had to beg to get her and she was $15.00. It worked as you can see. Her soon to be hubby is a LARGE black cochin!!!! I also am going to try to get a splash from a lady. I think that they are soooooooo pretty. I will get better pics tomorrw if the rain stops!!!!
