    [​IMG]Here is a bird I recieved a couple years ago... thought I would give everyone a chance to critique him...He is wet... This is the type of stock you would get when you would order from one of the very few breeders that had them... The kind you just waste your money on... What do you guys think.. this is a buyer beware situation

    geebs, The comb and ear lobes appear to be really nice, Is this your foundation male ?

    wow, what an ugly bird. It makes my eyes hurt. This is the antithesis of "A bird whose balance fills the eye.".
    Groan,

    I hope what you mean by foundation is concrete b'cuz.. that is the only thing I found redeaming... was his ability to fill a small hole... (he would make a soup taste mean) [​IMG]

    Had a side sprig, too, huh? Definitely not the best looking one I've ever seen. Nice eyes, LOL. Even the best looking rooster is ugly to me if he's mean.

    Oh that is a crown comb...Not just any side sprig... It is a prolific problem in marans...If you get it in your flock...It will show up agian and agina... No this would not make a good foundation for anyones marans stock.

    A crown comb? Haven't heard that term. Looks like a plain old side sprig in the picture.
