I found a possible match for my NOID yellow. What does everyone think? Yes? No? If the consensus is no, then it will forever be 'That Great Yellow of Which I have Tons.' If yes, I need to find a source for a test plant for a side-by-side.

Being "color blind" which means more "color interpretation deficient" I tend to look more at the details, although the color appears to match-
edges of fall
slight white at fall end of beard base
small amount of white at haft
veining at haft

All those say "a match" so get that one for a side-by-side comparison.

Thanks to both of you. I found one place that sells it but it's kind of pricy for something I may already have $15+shipping.

Anyone know a place or have some to share?

Dave - I stopped saying I am colorblind. I just see colors that others can't. And I really enjoy the colors I see with the exception of one. There is a shade of yellow that I don't often see but it's usually used as a warning, especially on curbs. And it is the worst shade of pea green on the planet. Problem is, it's actually bright yellow.

Bluebird has it listed at $4..
Congratulations on finding a possible match.. Not easy with those historic yellows... (or pinks, or blues, or....)
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

Email Bluebird first; Mary is doing an inventory and moving some stock around, so not all available this season. Argyle Acres is $5, Iris Warehouse is the $15 one but is out of stock.
