    I am having NO luck getting any answers for my thread in the Breeds and Genetics area.

    I'm needing some critiques on my other birds as I am debating on taking them to the Shawnee show.

    Here is the link to my previous thread (So that I won't have to reload all of the photos all over again.)

    Please help me out!

    Thank you!

    Oh! Ask GracefulBantams on our Okie thread, she is our showmaster. [​IMG] I don't think you're Barred Rocks look like Barred Rocks! And I don't mean that in an offensive way, they're gorgeous! The barring is very tight and clean compared to what I've seen. That is the first Blue Langshan I've ever seen, I always wondered what they looked like.

    How does your d'Uccle's comb look? Any sprigs or anything like that? I would for sure take him! I only remember seeing Porcelain and Mille Fleur at Shawnee last year.

    lol! see, I'm used to seeing the bantam barred rocks have better barring than the this is a shock for me to hear that they don't look like them! lol!

    I'll see if I can't get Graceful Bantams a PM!

    Edited to say: Nope! No sprigs or anything on his comb.

    mikarod, I replied to your other thread. [​IMG]

    Cammie, you are too kind [​IMG]

    pbjmaker, side sprigs are little growths on the back part of the comb that stick out to the sides (they are not good if you want to show the bird).
