Alvin http://waterfordsussexandmarans.webs.com/apps/photos/ Alvin Alvin 1 yr. old taken 6/27/10 Golden Salmon Marans cock. http://waterfordsussexandmarans.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=88625307 88625307 Alvin 1 yr. old taken 6/27/10 Note rear fluff is the grayish color seen on Golden Salmon. Not the lighter, creamier color seen on a Wheaten cock. http://waterfordsussexandmarans.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=88625308 88625308 Alvin 1 yr. old taken 6/27/10 Full face view. I should enlarge this. see the tuft of white feathers on the back at the base of the tail which should be seen on Golden Salmon cocks. http://waterfordsussexandmarans.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=88625309 88625309 Alvin 1 yr. old taken 6/27/10 Here, the setting sun shows off the richness of the color in Alvin's hackle. The French Standard says the hackle may be with or without and black penciling. http://waterfordsussexandmarans.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=88625310 88625310 Alvin 1 yr. old taken 6/27/10 Alvin's right wing. I have my fingers beneath his wing spreading out the feathers for a better view. Note the beetle-green sheen on the dark wing feathers which is correct for Golden Salmon cock. The sheen isn't visible on all the dark feathers because the wing is curved and the pic angle is not right for all the sheening to show up. http://waterfordsussexandmarans.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=88625312 88625312 Alvin 1 yr. old taken 6/27/10 Again, Alvin's right wing. I have my fingers beneath his wing spreading out the feathers for a better view. http://waterfordsussexandmarans.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=88625313 88625313 Alvin 1 yr. old taken 6/27/10 Closeup of Alvin's eye. Note the orangery-red color called for in the French Standard. http://waterfordsussexandmarans.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=88686394 88686394
