    I have my Modern Game Bantams photos on this photobucket page. I hope I am doing this right. Is anyone showing modern games in Florida? I would love critques on my 4-6 month old chicks.

    Are you looking to have them critiqued as possible show birds or just as pets?

    I am evaluating my pullets and cockerels to better my flock. I do show birds.

    Pictures cannot tell the whole story but there are some major issues with your birds.

    it seems that 1382 is the best of what I see in your pictures but he still has long wings and tail, his breast lacing is not too bad but the picture is blurry. He maybe knock-kneed, I can't tell.

    1382e is not the same bird as above - has extremely bad shafting and lacing- this bird is a major cull

    4719- long feathers especially the hackle - over laced and has shafting- he just isn't balanced with long back and big body

    The Brown Red pullets are not too bad from what I can tell of them but they are still are not balanced - legs too short for such a long back and big body.

    Over all I would say that these are not birds that you can breed show birds from, there are better birds to be had in Florida.
    I am sorry if I have been a little rough but you did ask for a critique for show birds.
    Good Luck- Bob
