    Later in the year this is the red in the wing you like to see on these dark birds
    the black is important but for beginners type is your number one choice in selections.

    One of my males in my bantam pen one. New York- Mohawk bantam
    cross.
    [​IMG]

    A female from Arizona I think Mohawk line notice her nice length of back flat
    when you look at her from above her back will be even and wide no taper..

    This is the last colored painting by Schilling before he died. Notice how he got the beetle
    green in the tail. You will have that on these top strains. Notice the brick shape flat top lines. You bantam
    breeders to be find you a strain that has females with backs or top lines like this not like Plymouth Rocks.

    I had to work 14 hours yesterday so could not post but for one minute.

    Be patient with your little chicks eye color will be there on all these dark strains you have purchased. No strain that you have purchased are slouch strains. Some may be better than others
    but they are all good top strains Select for vigor, then type don't worry right now on super fast feathering or early development but keep your eye on the one or two that jump out from the hatch and mature early. They can be your best breeders for next year. All chicks will develop differently as they get accustom to your environment. Its funny some chicks may not do well in your yard but you could take them back to the owners yard and in five months look fantastic. I hope this helps some of you new beginners be patient and ask us for help.

    I will post more bantam pictures latter. Got to do something this mourning and go back to work this evening. Keep posting and looking for rose comb large fowl chicks anyone have any or eggs just need five to ten. bob

    Terry got his rose combs from a youth who got some chicks from Radahaker a year or so ago. Is it possible this young jr. has some of these birds?

    I would like to get some myself.

    We have talked in the past how breeds of chickens have gone down hill and how judging is not as stick to the standard except a handful of judges I found a new breed of dogs yesterday that a guy brought by and talk about strict standards to even get these birds to be breeders.

    They have a dog master that comes to check out the young dogs and see how they work. Then if they pass the standards by this guy he puts a tattle number I think in their ear and then this dog is considered worthy to carry on the name and the breed.

    Very much like Bobby's German Shepherds that he breeds not just for looks but their working properties. If only we had this in our poultry breeds things would be so much better. That is breeding and judging by the standard better.http://search.yahoo.com/search?ei=utf-8&fr=slv8-tyc8&p=drahair dogs&type=

    Also, I have mentioned when you type R I Reds into Bing you see very few good pictures of true to type birds. Look at the pictures of this breed on Bing.

    I wanted to post some updated pics of my Underwood chicks. I love this line of Reds and am so happy to have them.

    This is Tanker and a couple of my pullets hatched out from eggs from Mr Heinz. They are just turning 21 weeks.

    These are some of the 18 chicks I got directly from Mr. Underwood. They are 9 weeks old now and doing great.

    Sounds like the SV (Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhund) The breed club has regional wardens who inspect the dogs prior to breeding. The wardens have to demonstrate solid knowledge of the breed and the dogs must have earned working titles. Afterward a ranking and Ahnentafel are prepared for each dog. This is a detailed pedigree that describes the temperament & type of the dog upon inspection as well as the same information on their parents. Registration in the SV is also known as having pink papers. The puppies are tattooed before they go to their new owners.
