    Hi All

    I have posted more information on the La Fleche fowl. Visit my web site http://longhornpoultryfarm.webs.com/ and tell me what you think.

    Thanks William Clayton Grace

    First and foremost, post some beautiful PHOTOS that provide an idea of what the Standard of Perfection is for the breed. The hand renderings on your site are beautiful, but you've got way too many of them, especially given the complete lack of any actual photos of the breed.

    Quote:Hi Diavolicchio
    Thank You for your advice and I plan to post many actual photos in next few weeks as soon as I get them. I did not want to post photos of others La Fleche. There is a place were others can post pictures of there La Fleche or any other breed of poultry they want.

    Thanks William Grace

    Love the website, especially the organization and the design. The only thing I'd say to change are the "photos" - People want to see real La Fleches, especially me! I'm very pleased to see someone trying to preserve such a rare, little known breed.

    Quote:Yes, I'm aware. But that still doesn't negate the fact that his website would benefit significantly from some actual PHOTOS of the breed that were truly representative of the Standard of Perfection for the breed.

    Very nice design and layout. Lots of areas of interest.

    My suggestions are

    - add a phone number and possibly your address to the Contact page. We get A LOT of people who find our website and then call to order chicks, pullets, meats, etc. Some also use our contact form (similar to yours), so I would leave that.

    - when you add photos, include some of your farm in addition to photos of the La Fleche. Some people are very visual, find photos interesting and enjoy 'touring' farms online. You could take a look at our site if you like. You'll find we have 1 - 3 photos of the farm, chicks or animals on every page. We get many comments from customers who say they enjoyed the photos.

    - I like that classic, almost mystic photo in the site header. But could you take a picture from your farm, apply the same 'look' and put it in the header? Perhaps a photo that could become sort of a 'logo' or 'branding' for you. And that would also be suitable for use on business cards, letterhead, etc in the future.

    Hope this is helpful. Again, I did enjoy my visit and like the site. When you add photos of the La Fleche, please let us know. I'd like to see your flock.

    Some of your fonts are not good choices--the lines run together without sufficient spacing top to bottom or the letters run together without proper spacing between them. Otherwise quite nice.
