    I have this one pullet out of a recent hatch who really stands out to me. From my inexperienced eye (trying to get better at recognizing good type when I see it) she looks pretty good. Large fanned tail, small comb, and a nice head. But, I would love to hear what experts think of her. [​IMG]

    Oh, and also, what is her coloring? Lemon blue? She was the only one like this in my hatch, and yes, she is 100% purebred.

    She looks like a nice bird. The only detraction is the comb looks like it's a little crooked. However, judges don't tend to be very picky about it. Hope this helps!

    You are correct. One point of her comb is tilted. Thanks for your comment. [​IMG]

    Not too keen on the OEGB but I like her. Cross her with a brown red I'll bet would make some fine offspring.
