    Okay, these pics are from a month ago but she(?) hasn't really changed much. Three months old in the pics. I was thinking female, but gamefowl are definitely not my area--came in a mixed batch of rare chicks. She's roughly a foot tall at four months...is this consistent with the larger O-Shamo or the smaller Ko-Shamo? She's nice, but the only one I have and I don't need her, so am going to try selling her along with some other singleton breeds this week but would like to nail down the description for potential buyers.

    It's a pullet. She definitely has some oriental blood, but she's not pure Shamo - if she came from a hatchery, she's probably Shamo X egg production breed.

    Not hatchery, so good to know...though no idea where they got their birds. Glad I wasn't off on the sex at least. :) So, poor quality ShamoX pullet. Any particular descriptors apply to the coloration? Still learning.
