I wasn't sure where to put this... but since it was the pics in the Standard of Perfection that got me wondering... I figured here was as good a place as any. They show a pic of a bird indicative of vigor and productiveness and one showing a lack of vigor and productiveness. Do these pics apply to pullets and cockerels or more so to hens and roosters? The reason I ask is because I am concerned that my birds more resemble the latter. They're healthy, they've been wormed, they're happy and active and a few of my older hens have begun to lay and lay nice eggs regularly. But, they do tend to be shaped more like the latter and not as 'filled out' as the afore mentioned body type. Is this just because they are young yet? I know you don't show a bird until it's mature....so maybe they change a lot after a year of age? Please...somebody help put my mind at ease! I'm so stressed out....even though I know the birds seem good...maybe I am overlooking something???? Here's one of my older pullets..... And one of my Bantam cockerels Am I being overly worrisome?
