    i just purchased a silver duckwing oegb hen
    shes going through a molt so her feathers are a little ruffled
    but in order for her to be considered show quality
    what must she have that maybe she doesnt

    also any help on my bb red oegb hen would b nice as well
    shes not molting so shes not to ruffled

    and my plan is to go to the ohio nationals in nov
    i would like to get a silver duckwing oegb rooster
    and a bb red oegb rooster for my hens
    what should he look like to be considered show quality

    is there a link that has this information on it
    if so could i please have the link

    thanks
    cole

    pretty birds, horrible pictures... you are going to get no answers with those pictures...


    pick them up, and throw them onto a table or something... take a pic as soon as they land... or when they are showing off to another hen... that will tell you if she's show quality...

    lol... i'm sorry, they aren't bad pics... they're great really... i like them... it's just that they're bad if you want the hen to be judged...

    side pics would tell us if the hen is worth showing or breeding... i really like that duckwing hen... her wings look too tight, but that could be because she's balancing herself on your finger... LOL...

    from teh photos it is very doubtfull the SDW is much on teh quality side. But you can always wait to see how she finishes back out, and definetly under weight, feed her good and see how she does.

    the BB red hen, don't waste the entry fee, she is too light in teh hackle, has considerable shafting, white in teh earlobes, and far too many points on teh comb.

    Those are the obvious based on these photos.
