A nice Light Green cock

I've been watching this baby in the nestbox for a while, comparing him with the good chicks in the other nestboxes. I thought he would be good, but I didn't realise that he was about week younger than the best of the other youngsters and he was looking pretty much equal in quality at the time. Now he's out of the box, he far better than the other (which has turned out to be too fine feathered). What isn't obvious from the picture is that he is large youngster, bigger than any of the other chicks.

Parents are Cinnamon Lt Green hen bred from two of Dave Swann's birds and a Dave Swann Lt Green cock who is a half-uncle to the hen.
