    None of your Old English Games look like real Old English Games. Ears must be red, your bantams have white. Body type is also incorrect. They are probably pretty crosses.

    Your largefowl Old English are very handsome! However, there are some things that make them appear to be crossed as well. One rooster is black breasted red, but his legs are not white. The second rooster (Maybe he is dubbed) but he looks like he has a pea comb. The third rooster has the correct leg color, but his breast looks flecked?

    The rest of your birds look like normal hatchery grade stock, pretty(especially the Speckled Sussex), productive, and pet-worthy. However, a full body shot would help a breeder of such birds reach a more accurate conclusion.

    Can't have white ear lobes and nee to have yellow legs. Colors need to be to actual color discription. To show oegb you also need to dub the chickens.

    Your Australorp, Wyandottes, New Hampshire (no red in the name) Barred Rock, and Sussex are not show quality, no where near, sorry. They're hatchery birds, which are only a decent quality for show about 1/1,000,000 chances. [​IMG] But as long as you love them, that's what matters.

    Wyandottes should be full-bodied, large, round in shape, have a very little tail but a large rising "cushion" a very short back and very good lacing. They should have a slight brow over their eyes, a short neck, and a nice breast with plenty fluff at the rear and a very open, wide tail that is not bunny or squirrel like in appearance.

    New Hampshires should have a lower set tail than that, a much longer, stronger back, less red, more black in the wing, a shorter neck, a bigger body and frame.

    Easter Eggers, being mutts, cannot be shown [​IMG] True, purebred Ameraucanas however can.

    The Barred Rock should be bigger, should not have a pinched tail, should have a very low set, nearly horizontal tail angle, and should have crisper barring.
