    I have to admit, I am not impressed by the Rhodebars at all so far. Not strong like the legbars, out of twelve ended up with 6. out of 3 cocks, only one is pretty.

    Do you think you could post pics? Both good and bad? Would help others a lot...

    Sheri I am still really liking purple. The unbanded cockerels look a lot more like my Rhodie.

    I keep jumping back and forth... they are both double barred, but I like ( and dislike) different things about each one.
    I am planning to use both... I will use one with the pullet above, the other will go over a HRIR.
    I was planning to breed the 2nd to a couple of HRIR, but... one of my RC is growing out a SC, so I figured she'd be the wise one to use under one of the RB cockerels.

    So... can you pick the two apart? I never take offense... just trying to analyze them... what do you like and dislike about each?
