    I saw your post in the other thread. I think your Cochin hen is nice and show worthy. She is a little out of condtion and a few of her feathers seem bleached. Is she molting? I think your Lagshans will do really well. I love the blue hen she is a looker. The BR bantams have good barring, but I dont know much about type with them. [​IMG]

    I don't have any experience with the 'specific' breeds and varieties you have, but I do raise MF d'Uccles, and I used to have P d'Uccles and W Cochins. It wouldn't hurt to enter them in a show, and let the judge(s) decide [​IMG] In my opinion, your Black Langshan hen is going to do great in a show. I also like the 'poofieness' of the Cochin [​IMG]

    Just my thoughts on the birds.. The porcelain D'Uccles beard and tuffs could be fuller. Looks like his feathers are in a bit of rough shape, so its hard to tell if his tail is correct or not. His foot feathers could be a little heavier, but they could also be out of shape. The barred rock in the cages almost looks like a dom. Tail carriage doesn't look right for a BR. The cochins bun isn't quite right. She could you a little more distinction between her saddle and her cushion.
