    here's my young Dellie, DuPont. he's currently babysitting for young EE's.

    any critique is welcomed. i am wondering about the amount of black; too much?

    Right now he has too much black but he has another molt to go before he has his adult feathers. He may look much better after the molt.
    Too young now to tell much about type & size.

    I agree, he may look totally different in plumage for his adult feathers. Good luck with him! [​IMG]

    Yeah, he's just a baby [​IMG] But he looks like he has potential.

    thanks for the comments, all. i am really looking forward to seeing him in his adult form. he just has the most wonderful temperament.
