    I'm not ecstatic about the male, but the female isn't that bad. The foot feathering on both don't seem to be overly abundant, but don't seem to have any issue with sparsity.

    I'd get a different male though. I just don't like what he's offering.

    I dunno, I thought the Roo looks better than the hen. ? Guess we all see something different. They'd make nice pets, maybe OK breeders. [​IMG]

    the first roo is weak on the front... your young one might fill up yet...

    I like your current roo. He will fill out more I give mine a year to finish out. yours has a much nicer comb nice even points. the first one lacks cushion.

    I don't think they're worth what you would be paying for them. I do like your current cockerel and I think he will fill out more as he gets older.

    Ditto. Keep what you have & get him a nice hen.
