    Rooster #1) I have to say has a a bit more "style" more upright and perkier tail. Has larger wattles too.

    Rooster #2) Is larger and has smaller wattles, not as "perky"

    If you are looking for the more correct rooster it would be #1. Tail set for the breed is 35 degrees. So both are way too high. Body should be wide across the back. Legs and beaks are good color. Comb 5 point and straight.

    The first has the body thicker body you want.

    Quote:Look at the photo that has both boys in it. #2 is definitely a wider body. The OP also said that #2 is larger.
