He was given to me by my breeder, and he won best of breed and best of variety at our county fair this summer. His name is Hugo and he's 8 months old now. I also just discovered that he seems to be a pro at fertilizing eggs already, lol. My SLW that just started laying has been laying fertile eggs since day one and he's the only fella brave enough to go near her, lol. Anyway, I just wanted to know what you all think of him. Will he be good for my wheaten breeding program? He's the only wheaten I have at the moment, so I have to use him, I just want to know if you think I'm starting off strong with this guy or not. Let me know what you think!

Hugo:





Here they are!

Back is long... good pea comb, nice and thick through the hackle... tail looks ok... something in the chest looks off, but not sure if it's how he is positioned or the pic or...

Can you get a couple more closer up profile shots and a head on shot?

Your OE girl lays a smooth olive, mine lays speckled olive.  Both cool looking eggs!

I just got more BCM and ACD so I should be good. The mutts and your gals are supporting the RSLs right now.

Sure, I'll get them first thing tomorrow. Just FYI: he is wearing a no-crow collar(poor guy) because the neighbors HATE his crow and it carries a great deal, so that could be why his chest looks weird, maybe?? His hackles really are nice and fluffy like that, though.
