    according to holderread, white muscovy drakes with brown or black markings on their bill is a show disqualification. still a good looking drake though. not sure if they would consider the black spot on his back to be a fault or not.

    Love that bottom pic! HaHa! What do your White Calls look like? Competition is pretty stiff on them. [​IMG]

    the color looks good. how big are they? bills look a tad long for SQ calls. just my opinion. i'd still love to have them.

    A show quality white muscovy drake would not have any black feathers on him at all. The drake also appears to have some smooth carnucling around his eye which I think is a defect. Your call's beaks do appear to be too long and their bodies also seem too long and racy. They need to be more compact.

    Your top Call looks pretty good-nice round head, eyes look pretty good, seems to have a short neck, bill and leg color look good. His body looks more rounded and compact than the bottom Call in the pic, but as you said, the angle isn't too good for determining body width. Their bills do look just a hair long and a tad narrow in the picture. Maybe a different angle would do them more justice.
    How are their legs? Are they straight?
    They don't look too darn bad to me! Of course, I'm partial-I think ALL Calls are stunningly, gorgeously, cute! [​IMG]
