GERMAN CHAMPIONS FROM THE DISTANT PAST
These Black and White photos depict German Champions from the
distant(and for some of us not so distant) past. I will give you my personal
assessment of these birds. It is a tribute to the breeders of this fine breed
to have made the incredible strides that they have in the last years.
This White hen already exhibits a slim body and good crossing of
her wings. The globe development and break is not what we
would like to see. Plus she is standing flat footed.
This white shows great strides from the one above. Remember
there is only four years of breeding separating them!This bird
exhibits better globe break, more globe roundness,tighter wing
crossing, and is standing on her toes. All in all she is a much
better bird.
I even hesitate to put this picture on this page. If you have a bird
in your loft that looks like this get rid of it.He is short legged, thick
bodied, and has a poorly shaped globe with no definition.
This 1972 Silver is a much better bird than the blue above. Why?
He is standing on his toes and has much better legs which are the
basis for any good brunner.Also, he has a longer neck allowing
him to blow a better shaped globe and have more globe break.
This 1966 Yellow also shows promise. She crosses her wings well
although she is thick bodied. Also she shows the beginnings of
globe break and a round globe.
