Is this decent barring or does it lean toward cuckoo?
He looks BEE-YOO-TEE-FUL to me, but I'm no expert...
Whoa! He's hypnotizing me!! Pretty boy!
Sorry hun...he looks like a hatchery barred rock although he does have much more defined lines than I'm used to seeing with production birds.
I have birds with a bit more definition in their barring.
Here's a photo of one of my females for you to see the difference:
Here is a 4 month old pullet:
Here is a show male that my cockerel SHOULD grow up to be:
He's a nice hatchery BR. Even though he's not show quality, he's a handsome guy. I've had them in varying qualities, but they are all good looking to me. I just happen to love the look of a BR rooster. It's why I have three of them.
I can now see the differance. The uniformity of the barring is amazing in the hen. But I am ok with him. He currently is the roo of a band of hatchery Q RIR, BO and SLW anyway lol. I am more interested in breeding for preformance and experimentation. I should get the preformance of the sexlinks without the sexlinkage lol. Now I can add a splash of polish for a small crest and I sould be done. I am wanting to create something similar to the french breeds seen on this site.
There are about 3 breeds that are very similar that I like.
Camount, pavilly, le merlerault. ALthough I guess le fleche and crevecouer blood would be best.
