Maximus is 4 months old today (dec 24, 2015) id like to know how well or how bad he is looking so far... he still has a little ways to plume out fully... just my first fbcm roo... trying to get an idea of how to judge them for breeders...

I'm no expert by any means, but I know quite a few breeders on BYC that say at this stage, unless there is a DQ fault then you shouldn't cull. He needs to fill out and get all his adults feathers in before you judge him properly smile.png

If you need a good opinion of him though I would recommend asking on these threads smile.png :

4 months.  It's a cockerel.  Let's just start there. When he's 9-10 months old, you'll have a better idea of what you have.
