    I thought I'd post a couple photos of this year's birds.

    The Dark ckl and I had just jogged around the yard for a couple minutes. Actually he had jumped off the bale of straw and I was trying to catch him. Deceptively quick, at least short term. They wear out fast though! He was too tired to hold his wings up.

    They are difficult birds to work with....especially the WLR's. You have good color and type

    He still has black where he had it as a chick, one way I identify him is by the black spot near his tail on the right side, but all of the males developed heavy red bleed due to being mixed variety, WC X DC. My WC cock has one copy of dominant white and two copies of recessive white, so the chicks hatched from him over my DCs are either white with heavy bleed or black.

    All I know about jubilee colored Cornish is that I read they are double laced white on red. I don't think mine are really correct visually or close enough to it by genetics to be called that, so I don't, though that's probably the color that the cockerels come closest to in appearance. The same-cross pullets are nearly solid off-white with much less bleed showing and very little if any of it is red.
