Boy, those are some beautiful birds. And the pictures are very nice too
You can't ever rely solely on the beard for age. I've killed three year olds with short beards and jakes with 6" beards. Spurs are the closest means we have to aging birds.Question on that 1st Picture- That bird I would call a Jake around here from his beard lenght- but his spurs look like a 2 year old- is that a trait of a Mirriam?
Nevermind I would call that a 2 year old!
