Does anyone have photos of full red fronted painted hens
Can they look like a normal cock bird

I have two pairs of emblemas with full-fronted red cocks. I've bred about 50-60 young from them over the last few years, from which about half could be considered "full fronted". They've yet to produce a hen that is even slightly better coloured than a standard normal emblema you'd get from a pet shop.

I would be interested in seeing a photo of one too, should such a thing exist.

Full red front painted hens do have a red breast like a normal cock (a thin streak) bird, but they lack the extensive red on the crown and behind the eyes
Here is an image of a group of full red fronteds: https://www.google.com.au/search?q=pain ... EHr9DKyDdM:
