    This is a hen, right? I was told it is about 9 months old.

    Ok, thanks just making sure, how do you tell on the hatchery? Is it because of the coloring? They had another with alot more white but I liked this one better, lol

    the lacing isn't great quality, among other things (wyandottes tend to be very round). I recommend you look them up on google...it will give you a better idea of what they are supposed to look like

    Here's a pic of one of my SLW hens that I purchased from the foleys.
    I'm not saying she's show quality but she comes from one of the top breeders in the USA. Sorry its a bad cell phone pic.

    Here is my girl at bedtime last night [​IMG] I had to test my new camera out, so I kept them up. They were not impressed.

    ETA: It's all about what YOU like. It is your chicken after all [​IMG]

    I got a Delaware that had smut feathers just because I liked the way they looked. I never planned to show her anyway [​IMG]
