    Very nice. I like the first buff rooster better than the second. Buff Hen 1 doesnt have any toe feathering on the middle toe, which is a serious defect.

    I'm not an expert, but I think both your buff roos probably have too much brown in the tail. I think they are supposed to be a lovely golden color all over.

    Yea. The 3rd hen also looks to have too much black in her wings and tail.​

    I have heard the same about the black feathers.

    Your splash and buff look nice otherwise. Nice poofs.

    I'd say, have some fun, show em!

    Ive also heard that you can take a blue rooster and mate him to buff hens, and the offspring will have less and lighter smut in the tails and wings. Ive heard that several times.
