The 1st one looks like he is vertical and has good wing length..but a little slim in the chest, and he has a long back.
The gap between his hackles and the base of his tail is pretty big...

In the second picture it is hard to tell, but he looks long in the back too...

The hen looks pretty good tho!

You want almost no back...like these....

NO back...


VERY short back...


See how he has a little gap, but his tail comes right up his back?
It depends on the hens you are going to breed them to...
If I was going to breed them, and didnt have an option to find better birds...I would get a hen with NO back....

Here is a better picture of Ham





i tried to get some better pics of Seraneaux but he wasnt having any part of it this morning.

I have actually been told before that Seraneaux looked like a Jap. I was really hoping he just LOOKED a lot like one. He was given to me. I was told he was an "extra" roo.

As far as weight I have not invested in a scale yet.

And the hen in the pic is actually sitting on 5 eggs that are due to hatch hopefully today. At least one has pipped the airsack i can hear it peeping.
