How difficult is it to raise wing carriage through breeding and when do you give up and go buy a bird that has what you are looking for in wing carriage?

THIS IS ANOTHER VERY DIFFICULT AREA I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT IF YOU STAY WITHIN YOUR OWN BIRDS THAT ARE ALL CARRYING THEIR WINGS LOW THAT YOU MAY NEVER GET RID OF IT. LOW TO LOW BRINGS LOW. I THINK THAT YOU HAVE TO INTRODUCE ANOTHER LINE THAT CARRIES THEIR WINGS WHERE YOU WANT THEM AND AS FAR AS WHEN DO YOU STOP DEPENDS ON YOU, AND HOW MUCH TIME AND MONEY YOU WANT TO SPEND, THERE ARE DEFFINTLY BREEDER OUT THERE THAT WILL ACCOMIDATE YOU IF YOU GOT THE $$

Alot of the low wing carriage out there came about with some fad breeding. Not all but some. Birds with overpronounced breasts and heads carried way back will naturally have their wings drop. Like a seabright they become cobby. Need to get back to breeding a more balanced Old English Game. The corredt carriage of head and breast is that when you drop a stringline down at tip of beak, it should just barely touch the breast. Not disect it. This can be done only through the breeding program. For birds that just have a lazy wing and want to drop them, conditioning can help, A swingung perch can strengthen wing muscles. They should not only be high but also tight. Holding the bird in the palm of your handpull the wing open. It should snap back in placetight to the body.

Wind carriage is one of the hardest things to get right. I agree with Kjundog this problem is wide spreed. If you don't have both a male and a female with good wing carrige I would go out and get some that do.

That's what I was thinking Randy. I'm thinking in some cases low wing carriage was bred into them because that was what was winning. Maybe today some of are problems with low wing carriage originates from this fact. Personally, if I need to raise wing carriage I only breed birds that have good carriage. Of course this means you probably have to go buy more birds.

if the head goes up and the breast goes out to far, usually the wings go down. just from what I have seen.

So selective breeding is the key. How many generations do you guys think it will take to show improvements in the offspring
