    a friend of mine told me he would not be good for show... I think differently he's so gorgeous! My neighbor got him from a breeder and they said welsummer... And my neighbor gave him to me when he was young.... Any advice please?

    He's a gorgeous roo, but he does not meet standard for Welsummers, sorry... :( his legs and feet should be yellow...

    To me, he just doesn't seem big enough to be BCM, either... and missing the feathers down the legs... idk...

    He looks like a mix breed to me. I don't think that it is a good idea to show him, as his legs are the wrong color for a Welsummer, his body type is rather long, and the coloring is slightly off.

    I agree he's beautiful, but he's not a pure bred bird. So, no showing for him, but he's great to look at and will probably make beautiful babies if you're so inclined.
