    I am having a hard time choosing a Golden Sebright rooster out of the 3 we received from Ideal. They all have nice qualities but I don't know which one is the "best" choice. PIcs are under the respective roos to give you an idea:

    Roo #1
    Fair posturing, some smutt on the tail feathers, moderate lacing on feathers, nice large comb with plenty of points, bright red.

    Roo #2
    Fair posturing, no smutt on tail feathers, little/no lacing on tail feathers, low/moderate lacing on feathers, comb is bright red, smoother than Roo #1.

    Roo #3
    Fair posturing, little smutt on tail feathers, heavy lacing on tail feathers, low/moderate lacing on feathers, smaller comb than Roo #1 but many points, red with a bit of mullberry.

    Sorry if the pics aren't that great. They don't do justice for them. My descriptions may not exactly fit the pics, so feel free to comment. After all, I'm still a beginner. I know they are not show quality, but I would still like the best of what I have. Thank you for any comments.

    Thanks Sundown, for you help. I was debating on 1 or 2 because #3 is too flighty and I would like to be able to hold him. I guess I may have to go with #2, but I'll try and get some more recent pictures.

    Yes, 2 is better than because 1 comb is too bumpy.
