Yes, Val, thanks for the information.......my purebreds look like that but the crossed hens area lot darker, they are the ones who laid throughout last winter, (a first for me). I have recently had a cockerel which has a slashed back (brown & white) so I might breed from him too. Unfortunately that means getting rid of one of the other boys as I can only keep 2 boys because of the crowing nuisance.  They do make a lot of noise unfortunately.

I have resurrected this old thread because I was not sure where to add this information. I have recently been trying to knit socks. I have been watching a lot of knitting videos on YouTube & reading a lot as I haven't tackled socks for about 20 years. One of the knitting gurus suggested using this shoe size comparison site if you needed measurements for the length of foot when knitting socks. It has UK, US, & European sizes for all the family (right down to tiny tots).  I thought I would pass it on to you as I know a lot of you knit socks or slippers for friends.

It certainly helps when ordering shoes online.  ok
