I am interested in breeding this pair and possibly entering them in some local poultry shows. May I have your honest opinions, please? They are young, and have more maturing to do.

The black has purplish sheen, green is much preferred. She is put together pretty well; appears to have a few white specks about the head and neck? I would guess she had at least one blue parent.

The blue cockerel is not finished out in the tail and lacks true lacing. He could be decent as a breeder. Nice small comb. His eye color is quite light; that could change in time.

Thank you. Do you think they are worthy as a breeding pair? I think the white specks are due to having her head in the feed hopper. LOL

Breeding pair for blues, don't count on any really good blacks out of this pair. I could be wrong, but doubt it.
