    I think I absolutely hate you.

    More PHOTOS!!!!!! Gorgeous birds! Definitely not hatchery stock, not show quality but much better than hatchery!

    ETA: Where abouts did you get them???

    They are nice, but unfortunately not sq. They're too tall, slender, the color looks a litle off, and their legs are too long. They are better than hatchery stock though.

    Quote:As well as being too long the legs are too fine. Tail carraige is wrong too.

    Gorgeous birds >>> I have no idea what's show quality or what's not, but who cares?? They have beautiful plumage to me.
