    Can you tell by the pic if these are smooth breasted or curly? Thanks for any input!

    The one of the left looks smooth breasted but the one on the right I am not sure about. I am no expert though just trying to help. They are beautiful!

    Thanks,
    Henry

    to me they both look curly, the one on the left, not so much. See that feather tweaking off its left wing?

    Thanks chickygirl.... My dad bought this pair last fall and they were really curly earlier this winter but now not so much. I guess I will be looking for a smooth sebestopol this spring.

    Thanks!

    They are probably molting right now and should look better in a few months.: )

    So is one better than the other? Curly vs Smooth?

    Some breeders like to breed smooth to curly to reduce chances of angel wing in the offspring. Angel wing is quite common with sebbies.
