I have 3 supposedly high quality BCM. A hen from one breeder that is gorgeous, feathered legs, beautiful shiny black feathers with copper necklace. The other two came from another breeder who claims to specialize in BCM. Of the 18 shipped chicks only a handful arrived alive. Only two survived to adulthood. One-a hen is tiny, slightly bigger than a banty. Clean legs. No copper showing up at all, completely black. The other is a Rooster. His black feathers are not the nice shiny blue-black , but kind of dull and there is no copper at all, instead his neck feathers are laced with off-white-almost grey. Clean legs also. He is tall and scraggly, but still a teenager so I am hoping he will grow out of his ugliness. Any explanation for the white feathers on the rooster and the tiny hen? They all get the same feed, with daily 4 or 5 hours out free ranging. I am new to BCM so not sure what the deal is....I was hoping to breed the two lines but not sure I should do that with such an ugly rooster.
