    Okay I am pulling my hair out again and need a favor. Can you take a picture of his studliness, getting a close up of his chest/breast area? Pleeeease I want to see the color variation and transition on the light blues.

    I may actually order another blue or two while I am finishing the dark blues. So...*begging* please get his highness to hold still for a photoshoot for me. Tell him I appreciate it and he will love his likeness and I will send treats when I ship this thing to you. Bribe him gal!

    Just post pics here in this thread and I will right click them. [​IMG]

    Aw, you poor thing! I'm about to go to bed. I did look, but can't find one that is any better than what you have. I'll see if I can get one tomorrow between rain showers. The thing is that his color isn't as intense as when he was a much younger studly rooster. May not look exactly the same--that pic you were working from is when he was maybe 15 months old. Now, he's an old man of two and a half.

    K thank you. Tell him thanks too for me...kiss him too. [​IMG]

    hmmmm well maybe I will go inbetween the two blue stages then. I just want to get a better feel for the feathers. I looked at my Speckles really closely but she is the SLW and so the black, silvery white is so much different than the blue tank's blue.

    He may not let me kiss him, but I always rub those impressive wattles, LOL. He's such a sweetheart, that boy.

    It's pouring rain, but I'll see what I can get for you. He has a light in the cage I've had to relegate him to, so maybe it would turn out okay.

    PS: No slipping going down the hill either.

    Yeah, the slipping part is what I'm afraid of!! Looks like the rain is letting up some. Let me see what I can do.
