    We have a cockbird and four hens. He weighs 2.5lbs, and they are 1.5lbs.

    Really, no comments at all? I was under the impression spangled bantam cornish are difficult to find, not counting hatchery stock.

    I don't know much about Cornish but those look good. I've seen a few spangled and mottleds a time or two always liked the markings on them.

    Colour is nice. They seem a bit loose winged & their shanks should really be thicker.

    Thanks. Ya he is a bit loose winged. They are all fat at this point, hoping with some exercise and a little better diet he might tighten up a bit. Could u post an example of the kind of shank thickness that is expected?

    Sorry, don't have any pictures of Cornish available. The illustrations in both the APA & ABA Standards show the relative size of the shanks pretty clearly.
