    Let me know what you think about this roo. He was given to us, and we must find him a new home as we already have plenty of roos.

    I was observing the APA judge at a local show and he showed me (and the bird's owner) that the hackles and saddles should be the same color. I don't know if that makes a bird SQ, but its something I remember him saying about the Leghorns. Good luck!

    As to the hackles and saddles, well these don't match in him. I was hoping he would be SQ as it would be easier to find a home for him.

    Wow- except for the earlobes, I never realized how much they look like wellies. [​IMG]

    He IS pretty, but I'm not a show person.

    He's a nice rooster, but not APA exhibition quality.

    Just because he isn't show quality doesn't mean nobody will want him... I think he's pretty.

    He looks pretty nice to me. The way he is standing does not really show how good or not he is. I would keep him if I were you.
