    what color are you breeding for?

    Hens type isn't bad. rooster's type needs improvement, leg cover and cushion butt.

    I agree with the rooster type but he is a big improvement over the hatchery roo I started with. Right now I have a mixture of colors. Along with the buff I have red brown and some interesting mixed that have no name.

    But for the most part I'm excited to see the improvments.

    I agree, the rooster needs more feathering but the hens are lovely! Beautiful birds!
