    He is only 6 months old, so he still has a lot of filling out to do. I have 4 and I think this is the one I want to keep.

    I want honest opinions on his quality and it will not hurt my feelings [​IMG]

    Anyone have any opinions, so I will know if he is a keeper or not?

    I assume he's an Australorp. He looks nice to me, but what I know about Australorps could be written on the back of a postage stamp. [​IMG]
    Are you able to alter the title to add the breed, then, maybe, the people who know about Australorps would be most likely to read the thread. [​IMG]

    I did have a different title, but I guess no one is in the critiquing mood today [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You didn't mention if you were looking at him as a "show" rooster or a pet. I think if you like him, keep him.

    Not going to any major shows, but my son is wanting to show in our local show. So, I need to keep the best one.

    I expect it's not so much that, more that one needs to know about a particular breed to be able to give an informed opinion.​

    He's still so young... try to hold onto them a while longer and see how they grow
