Can anyone post a picture of a Show Quality Silver Laced Wyandotte cockerel?
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.
well there you go.....you have 2 pictures to compare to....LOL
Ok thanks..... I am going to post a picture of my 10 week old cockerel tomorrow and see what you think about him.
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.
I know this sounds bad, but he came from Tractor Supply. There was 3 other males with him and he looks very different than the rest of them.
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".
OK thanks... That is good info
