    How do my bobs look for breeding, on a scale from one to ten?

    THERE'S NO ORANGE BOBS IN ANY OF THE PICTURES YOU POSTED

    THESE ARE MIXED COLOR BIRDS AND FROM A BREEDING STAND POINT IT DOESNT LOOK GOOD. THERE'S A COUPLE THAT APPEAR STANDARD COLORED THAT MAY BE ALRIGHT, BUT MIXED LINEAGE ISNT REALLY SOMETHING YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE UNLESS THEY ARE FOR FOOD ONLY (AND I DONT THINK THATS YOUR INTENTIONS) YOUR MEXICAN SPECKLEDS ARENT-- THEY APPEAR TO BE A BROWN/ BLONDE CROSS. GO LOOK AT DEERMAN'S SNOWFLAKES HE POSTED PICS OF RECENTLY-- A MEXICAN SPECKLED LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THAT ONLY GOLDEN INSTEAD OF WHITE. TO BREED THESE BIRDS FOR HATCHING EGGS THAT COULD END UP IN SOMEONE ELSES STOCK IS DISHONEST AND WRONG UNLESS THATS SPECIFICALLY WHAT THEY'RE AFTER (DOUBTFUL). WHILE EACH OF THEM HAVE THEIR OWN BEAUTY YOU'LL FIND PEOPLE WANT STANDARD BREEDS AND COLORS NOT MIXED. SO YOU WILL HAVE A LOT OF TROUBLKE FINDING A MARKET FOR YOUR PRODUCT.

    You will have to start over with new birds if you want to sell pure bobs. Do you have them all in the same pen?
