  • what do you need to know ? the standard has the color pattern, which you rarely see. most of the males are to dark , but most judges in the lesser varieties just go with type. the females are starting to look the same, but the male go from one end of the color spectrum to the other.

    Tater, This is so true. One of the first things I noticed when I returned to this hobby was that the ginger red males weren't what they were 20 years ago. Some come closer to the New Hampshire red color then ginger Got to admit type has gotten better though.

  • What I really am looking for is what do I look for when I have offspring to cull. I believe I understand the wing carriage, head, chest, and feather width and angle. I do not understand what is the color I am looking for in cocks and hens. What is too dark, too light, etc. Thanks for any information you give me.
  • my birds are just a little dark, top color looks a lot like a BB red, needs to look more like the bb x wheaten crosses. not too light but more Orange color.
    the female are closer to the standard, light creamy yellow breast and golden yellow hackle and stippled down the back and wings
    leg color should be a slate blue, older birds legs will some time lighten up

    looks at the standard, the bb female has about the same description , just change the brown color to ginger yellow
    lot of people showing females with shafting and lacing, just a defect
    black stripping in the hackle and saddle on the male is a big defect
  • Thanks, that is great information.
  • Tater knows his gingers so he would be a good one to listen too
  • If Tater is who I think he is, what he says is as good as it gets on Ginger Reds.
  • This is as good as it gets on gingers :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

  • Tater is right bout bout the diverse color in the gingers. I was amazed at the color differences in 60 birds at last years National. I ended up with Bv & Rv so id guess my females are close to what u want
  • Gamereaper, those are spectacular. Gingers are my favorite variety. I got my first small hatch last spring so I have a long way to go. Thanks for posting the photos.
