roo and hens:
From the picture the wings look real good and your roosters comb is nice and dark. The comb could be a lot smaller. They look clean to be in all that dirt. How do you do that?
The crests are somewhat small, male has too many hard feathers in the tail, and he has horns on the comb. That said, the wings look ok from pics and they look quite healthy.
Hen #1 has a long back. Hen #2 looks very nice.
Quote:I clean their tractor out often and move it to new grass all the time, so they are never in mud. It just happened that they tractor I move to move the chicken tractors broke down so it got a bit dirtier then usual.
IMO, I would say they are pet quality, as they are not something I personally would breed from. The hens are too small crested and the wings are lazy, but the roosters wings are great but his comb is too big and his tail is too hard. In general there is also too much air visible between the legs for them to be showbirds, but, if they are your pets, then they are excellent.
