    This is my Silver Laced Wyandotte Rooster. I already know he is not show quaility but I just wanted to know what was wrong with him so if I ever get a new rooster I'll know what to look for. Thanks!!!

    [​IMG]You see difference in body shape, lacing quality is different also. They both are pretty, but this roo is more close to the standard set for the breed. If you like to have show birds, order from good breeder.

    So is it possible to breed any of this out of him? Also, could his tail being too big be due to him having not molted last fall?

    As to your original question let me say if you hadn't said he was a Silver Laced Wyandotte I wouldn't have known. Does that answer your question?
