    I'd like to know if Cookie is of good quality or type. I would like to take her to the upcoming fall shows and I need to know if she would be worth taking. I posted under another thread but got no responses to I'll try this lol. Cookie was hatched 5/23.

    You could ask Katy, I hear she has wonderful wyandottes. [​IMG]
    ETA - I don't know anything about show quality but I do have to say that the lacing on your girl is much nicer than the two I have. Did you get her from a hatchery?

    She does have nice lacing, and her legs look good and yellow. I agree- Katy would be the one to ask. Not sure if she does bantams though.

    That probably explains why her lacing is so much nicer! Mine are hatchery stock but still pretty IMO [​IMG] I would PM Katy and ask her opinion. I am not sure if the SOP is the same for banty as it is for large foul but she could give a much more informed opinion.

    She doesn't look bad. The biggest problem with Wyandottes is the type (body shape) they should be shaped like a soup terrine.

    Both of these pics are of SLW Bantam hens that have won multiple Best Of Breed, Champ RCCL etc. They are nice examples of what a SLW should look like.
    Hope this helps.
