    Hi everybody! [​IMG] First of all, I do not breed to partecipate in exhibitions (for the moment) but I want to know if my chickens are in standard and what I can do in order to improve them. Do not worry about being rude, I am strong and I want you to be honest [​IMG] Unfortunately, my rooster is a little undisciplined and the photo's quality isn't very good cause I took them with my smartphone. The plumage is completely black (I can guarantee), the flash has caused white reflections in one of the two photos. What do you think about his body shape and about his tail? Does he have too many points on his comb? Thank you [​IMG]

    The standard of that breed looks for five point. [​IMG]

    Thank you for having posted the picture [​IMG] Yeah, the number of points is something to definitely improve! However I read the standard of BA breed and I think that 4 or 6 points are more or less acceptable but 5 tips would be the standard of perfection for that breed, that's for sure [​IMG] Do you have Australorps too?

    I'd like to hear more opinions on my BA roo from other breeders, thank you [​IMG]
