marraduna color

Hi guys we are looking for some pictures of perfect colored marraduna hens and roosters to show to a judge to help us trying to decide if we have the right color terminology in our SOP.  Do you think these guys are the correct colors?  Please post some pictures of Marraduna's that in your opinion have the correct color.
Thanks

I will post a few birds that I hatched or others have hatched from my eggs that I think are close:

Disregard the rooster in this picture he has too much black in his hackles, it was more for the group shot of the hens.

Re: marraduna color

So some of my thoughts on the "proper" marraduna color, or at least my preferred version of it.

Roosters and hens, I like to be able to see black in the hackle but not too much. FRF your boy in the snow I think has too much black. Most of the other roosters pictured above I think have a decent amount. females, one of Meg's too the right of centre has too much as well.

Hens I like the feathers to be fairly evenly coloured. I prefer not to be able to see light and dark aras or lighter shafts on the feathers. FRF the last pullet picture I like for that. Also pullet need that hint of red to their golf color with no grey undertones. The hackle feathers should be slightly darker but not too much darker than the body, if the body feathers are solid coloured I find that helps reduce the color difference. I think my favorit aside from the flock of the Spanish basque hens is middle picture centre girl of Meg's hens.

Rooster wing should be darker but not too dark. Meg's rooster I think that is a bit too dark. Spanish cockerels in pic one, boy on the left is too light. My preference would be the Spanish cockerel group either the centre or right boy.

Re: marraduna color

In gubi's OP, I don't think the color is true - the photos are too golden, the trees and grass look wrong to me.

I like the marking on those birds though. Gubi's white legged girl has excellent hen shape.
