's cockerel on the left and @RavynFallen
's on the right
|beak looks to have some bone coloring, just a personal preference for all black||
good beak color
|eye color looks good||good eye color|
|could be thicker muffs and beards||lacking in beard and muffs|
|comb may be a bit high, but nice tight fit to skull||would like to see smaller comb - but that could be age?|
|tail set looks perfect, but this angle is a bit tough to tell. nice transition from neck to back to tail.||tail set about 40, should be 45, but nice transition from neck to back to tail|
|Good feather quality, nice width on tail feathers||good feather quality, very nice wide tail feathers|
|good length on back, but hard to tell from this angle||nice length of back|
|i've seen other pictures where he shows more breast than is shown in this pic||good prominent breast|
Take this with a grain of salt - remember, I've only been breeding Ameraucanas for 5 years!
Personally, my pick would be scflock's cockerel, BUT neither of them have any major issues and the few I noted above are not show stoppers and can be managed with good breeding selections.
Thank you, Susan... really appreciate the time and consideration... no, comb is definitely to high I am working on it and the beard/muffs...
And your disclaimer...
Not bad, SC...
