    Is this still running? I've read the rules so I hope I'm doing this right! Here are three pics of Alesha, by buff Brahma Colombian bantam. She is approximately a year old. Joanne

    Well I am in the UK - I bought her from a local supplier. I am quite a novice - I just fell in love with her and bought her, along with Whitney, my Light Sussex. The feathers around her neck are quite dark - more like the lowest picture, but her tail feathers are more "blue" - well, a soft grey.

    Yes, she is lovely! The supplier has some more at the moment, including a rooster, but I can't have a rooster where I live, so I wouldn't be able to breed from her anyway. Also my husband says if I get any more chickens he'll divorce me! LOL!
