I have been posting pictures of my BLRW all over the place cause I am SOOO excited to have them! Yes, they are mere hatchery birds, but quality anything has been elusive in my price range Well, I knew my BLRWs don't have great color, though their type is pretty good considering they are hatchery birds. I have been told the term is too "brassy". Does this just mean that her red is not rich/deep enough? My splash girl is not as well built as my blue girl, but her red is definately much darker and richer than my blue.
