THE 2004 STABLE OF STARS

CONSORT STUDY!  PART ONE

This the first of a two-part set of pages describing the head of the consort needed in a stud of Glosters that is dedicated to producing Champion Corona Glosters.  All photos shown are of Glosters produced here and that are part of my 2004 stud.  They consist of photos that will show various head studies of what I like to call, "Corona-Producing-Consorts." 

Please click on the thumbnails to enlarge the image.  When finished viewing it, use the left arrow icon on the toolbar to return to this page.

As you study each image, allow the curser to hover over the photo so that a small descriptive title of the image can appear.  Above each series of photos, an attempt will be made to describe further the length and type of feather in the grouping.

The following row of photos are of a blue cock and a buff cinnamon cock with excellent rise over the head and slight browing.

The following series are of a clear buff consort cock with good finish and nice rise over the head.

The following series are of a buff green, short-feathered consort cock with great browiness and excellent rise over the head.

The following series are of a buff variegated Consort with a lovely rise over the head and nice back skull.   The green patch on the head gives one the illusion that it is wide-headed when in fact it is not.

BuffVarCock02F.jpg (124754 bytes)  BuffVarCock03F.jpg (147559 bytes)  BuffVarCock05F.jpg (103679 bytes)  BuffVarCock07F.jpg (105699 bytes)  BuffVarCock08F.jpg (105412 bytes)  BuffVarCock010F.jpg (132255 bytes)  BuffVarCock011F.jpg (102893 bytes)  

BuffVarCock012F.jpg (146735 bytes)  BuffVarCock013F.jpg (105359 bytes)  BuffVarCock016F.jpg (99019 bytes)

The following series of photos are of what I like to believe is the ultimate stock consort for the production of Champion Corona Glosters!  It is a richly-colored, high buff, heavy variegated green consort.  Notice the browiness and high rise as well as the bold back skull.

BuffGrConCock2Z.jpg (128109 bytes)  BuffGrConCock3Z.jpg (125161 bytes)  BuffGrConCock4Z.jpg (131242 bytes)  BuffGrConCock5Z.jpg (106231 bytes)  BuffGrConCock6Z.jpg (95534 bytes)

The following series is of a green buff consort with a fantastic finish, slight brow and nice rise.  The ideal "Corona-producing-Consort!"

These three views are of a lovely yellow-ground, variegated cinnamon consort.

  YellowCinnCock2.jpg (101243 bytes)  YellowCinnCock3.jpg (106556 bytes)  YellowCinnCock4.jpg (113507 bytes)

These three photos are of a short-feathered, yellow-ground, green consort.

YellowGreenCock1.jpg (119834 bytes)  YellowGreenCock2.jpg (146954 bytes)  YellowGreenCock3.jpg (122991 bytes)

Now a few body shots of the ideal consorts for the production of fantastic corona Glosters like the youngster in the last photo.  These consorts are of cinnamons, fawns and yellow-ground which are all considered "refining" Glosters used to refine the coarse feather in a line.  All "refining" Glosters must be used very carefully in a program otherwise one can lose the type and bulk in the offspring.

BuffCinnConCock1.jpg (114183 bytes)  BuffCinnConCock2.jpg (120117 bytes)  BuffCinnHen1.jpg (46314 bytes)  FawnHen1.jpg (47111 bytes)  FawnHen2.jpg (68376 bytes)  YellowGreenCock.jpg (81111 bytes)  

This buff, heavy variegated green consort hen is unbelievable and one of the finest Glosters I've ever produced.  In these photos, she is resting her wings from a long session in the photo box hence their seeming to droop a bit.  there are other photos of this Gloster on another page of this site showing her off much better.

The following set of photos are of one of the corona cocks used in The House in 2004!

BuffVarCor1.jpg (187178 bytes)

BuffVarCor2.jpg (165615 bytes)  BuffVarCor3.jpg (133086 bytes)  BuffVarCor4.jpg (109266 bytes)  BuffVarCor5.jpg (115708 bytes)  BuffVarCor6.jpg (153014 bytes)  

BuffVarCor7.jpg (110936 bytes)  BuffVarCor8.jpg (147548 bytes)  BuffVarCor9.jpg (150194 bytes)  BuffVarCor9a.jpg (140870 bytes)  BuffVarCor9b.jpg (134637 bytes)  

In my opinion, one can never produce such a fine example of a Gloster if one uses "Consort-producing-Consorts" as are shown on the page CONSORT STUDY! PART TWO.
