    A young male that I am seriously thinking of using to head up a double laced, blue laced red project pen. He's a 2013 hatch that has taken a while to mature, what do you all think ? He's replacing some primaries.

    I like him Gary. Good head, good width front to back, just POWERFULLY built in general. I assume you are talking about tail primaries as the tail looks a bit short and maybe a bit pinched? Can't comment on color as I know little(nothing) about what ever variety that is. Love his type. I appreciate the fact that in all your projects you stay true to Brahma type, AND you actually know what good Brahma type is. Awesome. I like the female too, looks like "blue jubilee" if there is such a thing?

    Thanks Tim.

    Your Cornish background is showing,(not that there is anything wrong with that). But yeah, same basic color pattern as dark, and jubilee Cornish, double lace. In fact the black phase should look colored similar to a dark Cornish ( once I darken the red and the neck), and the splash should look very much like a jubilee, with the visual effect as a result of two copies of blue, instead of dominant white.

    I like him as well, nice and wide. But I'm not an expert by any means.

    I am having a lot of trouble uploading pictures right now. I'll try again in a little bit.

    Let's see if this works now. First pictures have two of the choices in them. Adult cock bird and 4 month old. Please excuse the wacky feathering....molt, weather changes, etc.....

    You can be ruthless, I think I'm pretty aware of their shortcomings. I just need to pick one that I may be able to breed the faults out of more than the others. I've also got some eggs due to hatch this week from under a broody. Possibly I'll get a cockerel out of those.

    My plan is to put one of these guys over my darks, they are pretty good (although, still not perfect).

    Ugh you guys have me drooling!! Love the blue laced read brahmas! I'm picking up some gold laced dan powell birds this weekend I'm excited but I have to trade him a pair of black bantams to get them, I'm a little stingy with them but its worth it I think. Thanks for sharing your beautiful birds!
