    ok, yeah he's a he [​IMG] hahahah we def need better pics. close ups of the head, front shots and side shots of both. We're looking for body type. I think they are both looking excellent for hatchery birds... good compact birds with lots of fluff.

    Im leaning toward #1

    I am afraid I have to agree, I would need better shots of the lacing and side shot to show the length of their backs, and head shots that show their comb better , to help you choose.

    I know how hard this is , I have 9 Giants, I have to chose 1 and get rid of the rest, very hard to do.

    im leaning towards #1 too, bc he has better lacing and more fluff (you wouldnt know that from these pics, but he does).

    eta: im going to try and get some head shots and such..i tell ya tho, prolly took 50 pics of each one just to get those! these suckers wont sit still lol...i think #2 has the better comb -- its a lot more sharp looking and its brighter red

    heres #2 again

    I'd go with number one as better coloring, but I'd keep number 2 around also...your number one has a pale comb that doesn't look so hot...has he been sick recently?
