    Sorry for sounding demanding in the subject but I have someone coming in the morning to get one of my two light sussex roosters and I need to know which one is the best before then [​IMG] .

    Ok,
    Rooster #1
    straight back, evenly balanced chest and tail, 5 things on his comb.

    Rooster #2
    Back tilting up to the tail, chest seems larger then tail ( didn't grow a tail for ages ), 6 things on his comb.

    or are you looking for show quality?

    #1 is quite nasty But I don't really care. #2 is nice though.

    I am looking for the best/show quality rooster as I am hoping to breed and show them.

    does the number of the point things on their comb matter if you are going to show them?
