This guy is about 8-9 months old in the picture....he has a lot of filling out to do, but I would show him for sure.

Ok....... Here is one that I have that is only 10 weeks old. I know he doesn't look like much compared to what is posted above, and I don't know anything about show birds, but do you think this guy has potential to at least produce nice chicks with a show quality mother?

First can you say where you got him from? If from a hatchery then there would be a verry slim chance.

Quote:No, he doesn't. His type is poor, colour is poor & his head isn't shaped right for a Wyandotte. Wyandottes are a breed of circles. The head should fit in a circle. The shape of the body, neck & tail should allfit in overlapping circles. He's too long & flat in the back & his tail angle is too low.
There's an old saying that absolutely applies to chicken breeding: "you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear".
