The Little Black one, this one is for you Jan ;)

Post by Ontario Chick » Sat Apr 14, 2018 5:16 pm

Last year there was one Black chick in a batch of Columbians, it looked smaller and not quite "Wyandotty" enough, but who am I to
judge...

Here we are 9 month later, and although I will never know what she actually throws as she is with two other hens, I am curious enough to use her especially as I am after Columbian and she is out of a Columbian pair...

:shock: Well, she looks more Wyandotte-y now! What's her comb like, I can't see it clearly. I was sure she was a mixup at the hatchery! What colour are her eyes?

She's a beauty OC! My eye certainly isn't fluent in "Wyandotte" but she seems to have a great tail on her! I guess she was like the ugly duckling lol

What a kind bunch you are, everybody found something nice to say, I wish I didn't see all the things that are not quite....
I really do miss the time when I didn't see the faults ;)
Yes, about the tails...... :)
No wonder we are always looking ahead to the next batch of chicks, hope springs eternal :jumpy:

"The standard calls for tail angles on Wyandotte females to be 30 degrees above horizon.. this shows close to 20-25 degrees below horizon. If she picked up that tail over all results could be different in this show."
See Troys comment from the show!
Yes tails are an issue for me certainly LOL! I think I'll have to tie her tail to the top of the show cage in Kingston!
