    Looks like Poe has the nice mulberry colored comb and wattles, which is close to the color the SoP calls for. ("Deep mulberry, approaching black.") Difficult to tell from pictures sometimes. You have some nice fuzzy butts! (Only on BYC can we comment on someones' butt like this! [​IMG] )

    Quote:to place good at a show the bird has to look like their breed standard. and how closely they match it decides on what your bird places.
