    [​IMG][​IMG] I know there may be better out there, but I love my yokohamas.i can't get his whole tail in the picture, and it's still in blood feather. I love my hens too but they are great at avoiding the camera.

    I still just love that blue sumatra rooster of yours. He looks so perfect (to me) feather-wise plus the sun is showing that "sumatra shine" on him.

    Thanks Soli,

    Yep I like that line of them too. Its a custom blend I made a few years back. That one in particular just looks great to me.. Like the shine too.
    I think you may have seen it already but here one actually in the sun. It really lights up the lacing on him

    just have a hen pic of the shojo. Recently got them and fortunately they have been laying pretty well. Been breeding them to a real good bb red x shojo male. The results are about 90% shojos ( ginger reds) so will have more pics of males soon.
    Here's one of the hens

    here's a young blue silver ginger male. The shojos will look the same, just red instead of silver and with a black tail
