Re: EO pullets from Claire's hatch mid-Sept/11

I think nearly everyone has  a 'deer coloured' hen!   Like Lindy Lous 'Lady Jane" I hatched around the same time.  I think they are so pretty, not perfect colour for the standard, but they remind me of the Quail D'anvers which I love the look of!  Maybe we should make that another colour down the road.  Your girl is nice and long, I bet she will be even bigger in a year. 

Your other two are a nice size, widening into the bloomery hen look (scientific term...) and colour is spot on I think, cept the legss, but if you can use a yellow roo that will be Ok.  I can tell with these hens, these are sibs to my hatch last year.  I have two that look like each of them, all gold like that but 2 have white on the head, I noticed the other day one of them is getting a little black in her millieness that is creeping in.  Lovely girls.

Lovely little hens!!  Your right Claire seems we have had the lighter ones come out, she looks like what "gubi's girl" must have looked like younger.  I will have to post a picture of one of the hens from Lisa, she is soooo grey, very pretty.

I have to say I think we should make the Deer another color down the road i think it is such an attractive color

Re: EO pullets from Claire's hatch mid-Sept/11

I agree I just love the deer colored hen, she is actually my favorite hen of all. She is the friendliest (my personal most important trait) and she does have the yellow legs & beak and of course her feather color is awesome. These three hens will be bred with Susan's younger roo if he continues to turn out as well as he seems to be. Hmmm I think we should come up with a name for this color of hen, hehe Bambi comes to mind!
