    Quote:Nice. Are these Show or Breeders Quality?

    Well I haven't shown mine yet, but I might soon. So I don't if you wanna call them "showing type". I'm also planning on breeding these two someday.

    You'll need to know the breed standard and compare your birds to it. Katy's birds not only have good lacing, they also have the conformation that is necessary for a Wyandotte. Keep in mind that birds change as they get older. Katy's birds are what you are looking for, no offense to <3 chicken forever. Please forgive me, but I'm just going to draw comparisons between the two.

    On <3 chickenforever's male, see how his tail makes up the bulk of him? His tail is at the wrong angle for a Wyandotte and his back is flat. See how the back on Katy's birds slopes upwards to the tail instead of the tail "breaking" at the back? Also compare the lacing on the breast as well as the hackle and saddle feathers?

    Again, I don't mean to hurt any feelings, just drawing comparisons between the birds for illustration purposes.

    So the roos back needs to be upward. What about the Hen?
