I like the yellow dunn bantam cock at the bottom. Its hard to judge for size from a photo, but I would be interested in how he would go with competition in the show pen. You dont often see a good miniature of the large.

I like the ginger pile, thats a pretty awesome looking bird! :thumbs: Can I ask why a lot of these guys are tethered, is it just for the purpose of photographing them? Not stirring, just interested! :D
