Hi guys what’s your opinion with this drake. White eye stripes dark bill and washed out grey head.

I think his head colour could be stronger.

There is some information on the Saxony at this link: http://www.openpoultrystandards.com/Saxony
This is the drake photo from that page. The breast colour seems to extend a little to far down the side of this one but you can see the colours and there is a description.

your drake is in an eclipse moult so not he's true colouring. He should improve colour closer to breeding season
