    I am looking for information on how to tell which hens to breed to my roosters to get longer saddles on my birds, how do you tell it is a good hen with the feather quality you want? I can see good genes in a Rooster but I need to know how to grade a good hen with the characteristics that I am looking for. Length. Any help would be extremely appericated.
