People are quick to state what they feel what is leakage verses what accurse from natural sun light. Through the years as my roosters range on fields that range from 5 to 8 acres. It is clearly seen that like all animals they will lighten upon the exposure to natural sun light. I have been guided by the best by top breeders that also agree that sun lightening verses actual unnatural bleaching are actually two different causes of sun exposure and should not be considered sun bleaching in our fowl. Yes, all fowl exposed to sun will lighten but these doesn't take away from the fact that young offspring will change as they mature. Like most show quality fowl will be kept indoor to keep there beautiful rich natural coloring. One must quick to judge before understanding what goes into the making of a show quality chicken, fowl, or as far as that matters even a show horse. We keep all of our show animals in unnatural surrounding. So we all must not be so quick to judge before we all now the whole story. Lets hope we all care and keep all of our animals happy for our enjoyment.Why I posted the photo of my lavender rooster was because I've had request from people who have purchased chicks. This thread was suppose to share beautiful eye candy. As far as the leakage if a judge says its not leakage but from the sun that's good enough for me!!!He hasn't molted yet!
