Thanks for the feedback. His comb isn't red but not the dark mulberry color I wish he had. I plan on breeding him to a hen with a very dark comb to improve that. He has very good foot feathering and 5 toes.
What do you think about his body shape and crest feathering? Would you use him in a breeding program? And would his comb color cause a DQ if I showed him?
His comb should be darker. Beard, crest, and tail could be fuller. He's too tall and doesn't look wide enough. He does have nice tight wings and good foot feathering though. Depending on what your hens look like, you may want to find a better male.
I would look for a better rooster bad traits at the start can make it harder for you later and there are excellant quality Roos sold all the time since you can only keep so many -Affordable it is easier to start with a top notch roo -
If that is not an option try him see what traits he is sending - No penalty for trying -- you just may end up with great girls and poor quailty male offspring which is great for kids looking for PQ ---
