Here are a few pics of my project birds I thought some of you would like to see. They are about 9 months old right now and their saddles are still growing. I think they will be fairly impressive when their feathers are done growing.

I was just looking at the bird in the top picture today and his all of his tail feahters are still in full bloodfeather. After they dry down I'll post another picture of him. He is starting to impress me.

Here is an up-dated picture of the dark barred rooster above. His saddles are still in blood feather and his saddles touch the ground. I now have him over a few hens so the feathers may get broken but I realy want chicks out of this rooster this year
Hope you like the pic, I took it at night to get the black background.

Thank you for the compliments It keeps me encouraged to keep up the projects.
As far as an update, I'm currently just waiting durrin the growing period. I have several birds that are looking great from barred light dun to dark barred like the bird pictured above. I'll post some pics in a few weeks. As for the saddles they can't get any longer without getting ruined by dirt and mud, so if I want to get them even longer I'm going to have to build some tombaku to hold them in. I'll keep everyone updated.
