    I would like to get some honest opinions on him.




    In this picture, he seems a little long to me, but the others are his usual stance.

    I just don't like this picture at all...ugh...but...whatcha gonna do? He's a flighty, flighty bird.

    I know nothing about Minorca, but wanted to say I think he is a handsome fella. I love the green sheen and gorgeous flowing tail.

    Hahaha! Thanks! If only he'd keep those daggum feathers for shows! I SWEAR he knows when I send in the paperwork!

    From what I know of the breed, that is a fantastic specimen. I'm absolutely drooling over him, I love his long feathers, absolutely stunning.

    I bet he does great at the shows.

    Got his parents from Superior Farms, and they got their breeder birds from Richard Shocke (sp?).

    I wouldn't know...he always starts molting in time for the shows! I was CERTAIN he'd take the Mediterranean class this year at the Tulsa State Fair...but alas...without a tail it makes things a bit harder....
