Do you think this is a good quality bird.
Do you know whats not right about him?
It is hard to tell about a bird till they have finished out - he is not. His condition is also rough and that makes it hard to tell if his type is right.
I can see that he is carrying his wings too low
His color is off also- hackles are way too light especially at the bottom. Hackle and saddle should match.
Wing bow is not solid but that may get better
All the things already mentioned as well as he could not be shown because of his comb.
Yeah i talked to some other breeders and they agree with you guys. Heres some of the birds i just purchased.
And they do need to be dubbed.
Old english roosters must carry their tail at a 40 degree angle, hens at 45 degrees.
all roosters must have their wattles/combs and earlobes dubbed. At this age, it would bleed too much, they must be dubbed when the comb first appears. It will bleed, but it must be done. This prevents frostbite... on the face.
here is my rooster... I cant show him anymore because of an inccident this winter with his feet
