I have a couple of Hebert Minor hen necks in all three shades, plus a few in between. One of my favorite colors of hen. As far as picking a favorite of the three, I'll go with the middle one. Maybe it's a question of lighting, as the light list fly seems too bright for me and the very dark list, a bit too dark. Why do I feel like I'm writing a Goldilocks answer?

I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.
