    Sorry but none look like show birds to me. Is that a Serama or Japanese, as it looks intermediate to me. I don't know what to consider the girl. As for the Naked Necks, he is not show quality but she is not too bad but not a great show bird.

    Neither of the Naked Necks are a recognized variety so that would obviously be a problem. What are the 2 bantams supposed to be?

    Training them will not make them Show Quality. They either have proper type, or they don't.
