    What requirements do you speak of?

    When it comes to coloration, he isn't an APA recognized color. I described that in further detail in one of your other posts.

    When it comes to body type, he doesn't make the cut either. He has a pea comb and would be disqualified from any show. Any serious breeder would have culled him right from the brooder for this.

    Body wise, it's hard to tell from pictures. Feeling and observing a bird in person is much more accurate. His back looks short and I would liked more meat in the chest region. He seems like he might be underweight.

    Ok thanks. I wouldn't be surprised if he's underweight. He always gives gis food to the hens
