    Here's my Crele cockerel...Missing some of his sickle feathers :(...What's his fault so I could improve him...l know he has one grey tail feather on the other side which it's no bueno but hopefully I could improve that...Also his sickles doesn't seem to be barred correctly, too much black...

  • I have culled many very good creles because of solid or partially black sickle feathers and only bred from males that had no solid and it doesn't matter I still get some every year with partially or solid sickles, Last year I raised 2 cockerels that are the best I have ever raised, One is prefect with no hint of dark sickles, The other has a dark sickle and a dark secondary sickle, I am breeding out of both of them and will see what happens.

    On your bird the sickle feather I see looks to be bared ok to me, he has 2 white wing bars that is good, It is hard to tell to much without a good side profile, His tail seems to small and low set and makes it look out of balance to his body
  • Thanks Ron...I hope his tail finish out nicely once it's fully grown...

  • males are easy to tell, females look the same as bb chicks
  • Ron, are you saying the eye stripe is the way to tell male from a female. Or will the males look different
  • Males have large golden spots all over there head and don't even look like a chipmunk marking
  • Faint to no striping and a down color cloudy in appearance with no real distinct markings are males. Females look like BB Red females chicks with very distinct eye stripe and striped back.
  • Ok thanks guys! This is our first time with crele. And trying to get everything lined out before the eggs are due to hatch.
  • Is this what the Crele males look like?
