    Nice comb, hard to tell about his type, could you get a side pic and a pic of his feet? From what I see he looks good

    No, the overall shape of his body compared to what the SOP says

    It looks like he has some light color on his hackles(the part of his neck that attaches to the body) if it is lighter is tan or silver color and not dark blue like the rest of him he will be disqualified at the show.

    I didn't notice that when the pic was small, does he have Silver leakage in his hackles?

    The color that appears on my screen looks to be a blue....but it's hard to tell for sure. Below is a pic of one of our black hens for comparison. Since you see him in person, is he dark like that?
