Understood. I guess it is possible that their parents were splash. The breeder we got them from has all three varieties.
I was looking through your albums just now and your birds are very pretty. That's one thing I love about the BLRW, they are always beautiful, but your birds show great potential, IMO. I was wondering why you chose Karl over Napoleon.
What kind of camera do you have? Those pics are very nice!
Well, let's be sure to check in with one another as our birds grow up. Will be interesting to compare as they mature! :-)
Thank you very much! I chose Karl over Napoleon primarily because of the size difference. Karl is just huge, with good type, while Napoleon is closer in size & height to my hens. He would tend to blend in with the hens when the flock was free ranging. He also had 3 leaders on his comb, while Karl has only 1 so I didn't want to perpetuate that trait.
The camera I have is an entry level DSLR Nikon 3300 - I love it! It takes great photos and was relatively inexpensive.
I do need to get out there and get updated photos of my birds but have been super busy lately.. and the older girls are molting right now anyway.
