    First, a group shot of my 4 chooks. I miss having a bunch more... But ah well.
    Fabio 2.0 my bantam barred plymouth rock cockerel, Hera my self blue d'Anver hen, Rollie Pollie my bantam partridge wyandotte hen, and Goose my bantam wheaten ameraucana

    Now, opinions would be greatly appreciated on my wyandotte and ameraucana girls! Thanks in advance!

  2. im not an expert, but that barred plymoth rock cockerel is amazing. I thought he was fake for a second, as he looks too perfect. Beautiful. [​IMG]

    Quote:AWW thank you! Yes I'm quite proud of Fabio. He got 3rd out of 8 WONDERFUL other cockerels at the big Stockton show. The two that beat him were from a breeder that's been working on this breed for a very very long time, they looked like they jumped right out of the standard of perfection, so I was very happy to get 3rd, especially since the other 5 cockerels in the class that he beat were very very nice too.

    The wyandotte looks pretty good. She could use some improvement with her tail though, it just doesnt look quite right. The hens tails are supposed to be at a 30* angle. The good thing is that she isnt bunny tailed which I see alot of especially in partridge.

    I am not ameraucana expert but her tail looks pinched. Alot of the LF wheaten ameraucana hens I have seen are more light colored, they are more white than the typical wheaton hen.

    The barred rock is beautiful! Perfect barring and wonderful face. The blade could be a little better developed on the comb, but overall, NICE BIRD!

    I can't tell a lot from the self blue's picture, but she looks like she has nice coloring and a full beard.

    The Wyandotte is pretty good too. She has nice penciling. I'd like to see a broader head, shorter beak, and a more pronounced main tail, but she would probably rank well in her class.

    I'm not too keen on Ameracaunas, but I can tell you that she has too much shafting. She's likely from a cockerel line.

    You have a nice little flock going. [​IMG]
