If you post pics provide something common for a size reference from side and front views. A 12 Oz. soda can, can of vegetables etc. something common we can all relate to. You shoul dknow I like single mated lines with very good females.

    He is a Blue Golden Duckwing, he is not a Birchen based bird since he has a Wing Bay present, no apparent pigment to comb or earlobe or wattles, and a light eye, However he has dark legs which is a defect for the variety.

    Show cages vary somewhat based on manufacturer, 12 Oz. soda cans are always 12 Oz. soda cans. if you have soda that would be great if not use a can of green beans, peas etc. what ever is in the cabinet.
    Will need a front shot to show breast width and depth, and color. A shot of each side to demonstrate length of back and wing carriage, one top view of back, one with each wing spread and the under side of the tail feathers. Then a good general photo in the show cage with a size reference.

    He is a Blue Golden Duckwing, he is not a Birchen based bird since he has a Wing Bay present,

    His wing triangle color is tricky.... First time I see one so melanized...but the later pics helps alot...
