Jase, I think that you could improve the curuncles on the head, as the head appears to be quite smooth, which is a common fault on a lot of muscovies

Regards,

I thought he might look a bit familiar... looks like he's grown into himself a bit? :wink: He is a nice looking boy, not a professional opinion by a longshot and not sure if it will make a lot of sense but he looks like he is well balanced overall - nothing at extremes and various bits in proportion with each other yk? Hopefully will do you very well to continue promoting bronzes in the showring. :D

rogerh, smooth curuncles on bronzes are common, but it seems a trend in the Southern States to have smoother curuncles than the Northern areas.

I have breed from the same hatch both smooth and good curuncles. But draw the line if it causes health problems. Very rough curuncles get dirt and they get "blackheads" just like human, I have also ssen these blackheads get infected.

So my standard is a meduim curuncles for showing, but but again it is not a lot of points, so if it is smooth, that is fine by me.

this is my Bronze drake

I would prefer to work on getting them both pure bronze (no white feathers) then work on the curuncles
