    Turk is just getting more and more ugly, he looks like his wings are on upside down, he has a white beard, fuzz, and just scrawny. But he's sure a sweet little guy.
    Butterscotch has a beard,, she also has very feathery legs that I'll get a pic of later.

    Turk is also hard to get to hold still:

    ButterScotch is pretty though, beard and all and I think she's female. That's why I say she.... hehehehe

    I feel bad for the little guy, the only ones that will have anything to do with him are the two Polish and Show-off,, they were hatch mates.

    Poor guy, reminds me of my Madagascar game chicks. I think Turk has the frizzle gene.

    Butterscotch looks kinda like she's got some d'uccle in her. [​IMG]

    He looks like he would make a good character for a childrens book.

    Dear Lord, what is THAT????

    Took me a sec...the first thing that went through my head (after the above caption), was that "OMG, I WANT it!!!"

    Ahem....seeing as I don't know much about that variety of chickie....are the bodies supposed to look like that, as well, or is it just the necks?
