Building a Better Columbian

screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-11-44-02-amIn this process of fixing the Colombian color, bone structure, and putting the correct feather on them to be more competitive with the whites, we’ve added whites into them.

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.
