    Lacking round Wyandotte type,too high,back too long, legs too long,wrong tail.Not sure if it's gold breaking through on his shoulders or dirt. Looks to have a very good comb.

    In the pics he is all stretched out/ up looking around. On the alert. [​IMG] And it's dirt on his wing lol.

    Here is a pic of him standing more normally.

    If you're looking for critique based on how a Wyandotte SHOULD look like. . .

    He's a typical hatchery bird, so. . . He's got way too long, big, and high set of a tail, too skinny of a body, so far he looks to have too long of legs, too, his lacing is quite poor, and his back is too long. However, he does have a good comb, and at least he doesn't have a squirrel tail or practical "spangling" like a lot of other hatchery-quality Wyandottes.

    Otherwise, as a plain 'ol backyard rooster, if you like him, that's what matters. [​IMG]

    I would suggest checking out the Foley's site to see what exceptional wyandottes look like. SLW, BLRW, blue or black, they're about the best you can find.
