Judges Comment: Nice fowl, well laced although failing at the wings. Needs more fullness in tail and eyes appear a little sunken that detracts from the head of the bird

Traffic Light: green

Judges Comment: Nice fowl, well presented, good colour but most importantly showing size and vigour without coarseness. There appears to be a tendency towards rolling of the middle toes in the picture (my apologies if it is just the picture but that is all I can go by).

Four pictures only.

Exhibited By: scotts

Judges Comment: Good colour and eye colour. Nice length, watch tail set and rise of cushion before the tail. The whole of the shank should be visible even if the hock is obscured by body feather. Tightening feather would assist with the underline of the bird and also cushion on back

Sussex Light Male

Exhibited By: G & K Collins

Judges Comment: Nice typey Light Sussex male. Appears to be a good large bird. Someone forgot to tell him he was coming to a show though and he is reluctant to display. Good width and colour although some bleeding of the black through the lacing in the hackle, although not too bad.

Exhibited By: Andy B

Judges Comment: A fit young male in good condition. However, he appears to lack size and depth. I'd like to see him fuller and wider in front and carry this through the undercarriage up to the tail. Some of this he may still grow in to. His leg set is not good on the trampoline which may be because he is not sure of his footing
