    Curious, are we judging this based on how far they are from the standard or just personal taste? (for example, a Turken might win or something)

    How far from standard. (which doesn't mean giving your chicken a breed that isn't it's own). Can't wait to see some entrees [​IMG]

    Are you sure that isn't a male in disguise??

    I think my golden laced polish pullet is growing spurs too. Some hens do grow spurs, and apparently a large amount of the rare "spurred hens" are polish.

    Yes, we are sure she is a hen, I wave watched her lay eggs before. You can tell by the crest too that she is a girl because its more rounded than a males crest, plus look at her wattles, they are smaller than a males would be. [​IMG]

    Even for a "mutt" Marvin is a very special bird.
    You can't see it in this picture, but sometimes he gets a feather that looks frizzled, and then there are his legs... poor little guy. I don't know what's wrong with him. [​IMG] I say he visited the nuclear plant once. [​IMG]

    Name: Shadow
    Breed: Easter Egger
    Why I Should Win: Shadow was supposed to be an EE. I got her at about two weeks of age from a friend who had ordered the min. order of chicks, which was too many. She is not an EE. Yes, she is bearded and muffed and she does have slate legs. She is that partridge color that seems to be common in EEs. But she lays brown eggs. [​IMG]

    Name: Swarley
    Breed: Supposed to be an Australorp!
    Why I Should Win: Swarley is a chick I bought about a week ago from someone who was calling her an Australorp! I actually bought four "Australorps", two of them that look like they are actually Australorps, one that is weird and black and red, and then Swarley. She looks like a blue Orpington to me, or maybe Australorp x blue Orp. She is about two weeks old I guess.
