    I don't know too much about them, but I think he looks pretty good (maybe a bit on the light side)- except the wings almost look "shaggy". I wonder hat they meant by pullet breeder? Because his chest has good lacing?

    You probably weren't getting responses because of the time [​IMG]

    I have a handsome Rooster but yours is closer to what I wish mine looked like. Mine doesn't have the pretty lacing I was hoping for.

    This was when he was still younger but I will go out and take a new one.

    I had plans to breed mine to my golden girls who are beautiful and try for some blue laced reds. Yours is better stock for sure!

    I think the Pullet breeder might be a catch phrase like a left handed smoke shifter or a yard of flight line and a bucket of steam.

    He probably looks a bit rough if he's finishing up a molt, plus he looks like he might be older. Do you know how old he is? I'm not sure what they meant by a pullet roo. Here are a couple of pictures of my bantam SLW roo to compare him to. He's only about 6 months.

    Here's a couple of pictures of one of my LF Silver laced. I'm just getting into the bantams, so I'm honestly not sure how their body type is supposed to compare to the large fowl.

    Here are pictures of my Rooster to compare. He was hatched 7/20/2009 so he is still young but I think he is finally fully grown.

    I realize it took a long time for his lacing to look good and I usually look at him from the top and I see he has thicker lacing but I still think yours is better laced.

    He seems to have an awful lot of yellow in his back/wing. Is he on heavy corn based feed? His lacing looks pretty nice on his chest. I don't know much about wyandotte type, but he looks a little thin to me. It could just be the pics though. Any idea how old he is? His legs appear to show signs of scaly leg mites as well.

    the Roosters who throw good pullets but the cockerels look more like pullet were patterned feathers and they were looking for a Rooster that would produce good cockerels for showing with the proper feathering patterns. This is probably what the person meant. I am not a Dotte breeder so don't know a whole lot .

    I am having a hard time looking past his condition, it takes a more experienced eye than mine. He looks like he may lack the type to produce that round basketball look that is desired in Wyandotte's

    In terms of pullet producer there are many breeders that may have a line that they specialize for the males and a line that they specialize for the females. Not sure how the crossing works after that but I know that in many species including horses there may be a blood line that is known for producing outstanding sires and there are those lines that are known for their females. I think that is what this person may have been referring to.
