Building a Better Columbian

I’ve seen some really bad wings and color overall. Believe me, this is a large improvement! Plus, take a look at the width of feather. It’s not perfect , but it’s getting closer to where I want them.

The total cuts for the wing is what, 5 pts?  I have a plan and I’ll get there my way and when I’m done they will be correct.  These birds are getting better every year and will continue to do so.
