Happy Chooks, In my opinion (but I am no APA judge), your birds are much better balanced than most, and I like the back lines seen in these pictures. The cockerel is indeed nice, I think. Judging from these photos, your birds also show a nicer/higher tail set and excellent wing carriage than most others I have seen. Your pullets in the photos have some (severe) comb issues, though. The cockerel's comb looks nice even though he lacks a point, but it does not appear to be overgrown down the beak and doesn't show folds, twist, or thumb marks as far as I can tell. He would definitely be a keeper for a breeding program in my flocks. On a final note: The peppering (stippling) on the pullets may be a bit too coarse, bordering on lacing. I can't really tell from the pictures.
