    Hatchery chickens aren't usually the best quality, but occasionally you get a really good one. Post you pics here!

    RS Yokohama:

    Silver Sebright: good lacing:

    *White* sebright roo (mutt from the hen above) but still great body, for being half sebright:

    Not quite sure of the quality of this one, but tell me what you think. Light brahma bantam:

    Golden Campine:

    All (except the roo- I hatched him) of the above from Ideal. [​IMG]

    None of those are good quality [​IMG] The cross has a bad body, the LB has ticking, all of them are to large or to small for the standard(ex. Sebrights should be way smaller than that and the Yokohama should be bigger) and none of them have good type. Still very pretty birds though, I just wanted you to know that they are not SQ. Although I will say that Sebright has very good lacing for a hatchery bird

    Your Light Brahma is pretty decent actually - It still has a hint of the typical hatchery-stock pencilling on the back, but not too much. [​IMG]

    I'll get some photos tomorrow of my best hatchery girls. They still have downsides though of course!! [​IMG] Never seen "good" hatchery birds before.
