  • His color is nice, one thing to watch is that the shafts in the tail should be black. When I get the black out of the hackle the color shafts start, so it's a fine line to play

    Yea he for back with me, thank you
  • Ok thanks, Dusty
  • Fifteen or twenty years ago orange shafting in the tail of both male and female was a problem. Seems to be much better now. One thing that seems to be lost on the males of today is the lacing on the tail coverts. A big problem with females of today is brown eyes.

    With GR chicks, are there any distinct markings to tell if they're male or female?

    ?
  • Do you think these Ginger Reds will get any darker? Especially the males. Looking like black tail buffs right now .....

  • As they get their sex feathers in they should darken up
  • Thanks Dusty.. the parents are on the light side, so hoping these won't get too much lighter than those are
  • I wouldn't plan on them being a lot different than the parents but I do get some varying shades from mine
