This Welsummer cockeral is showing some barring in his hackles.  Even coloration of reddish gold would be more desirable. 

 

The birds below are showing a few faults.  The hen's hackles are showing very little yellow.  Her tail angle is way above 60 degrees, as the APA SOP dictates it should be.  It could be the lighting, but the undercolor on the male should be slate.  A smaller comb on both birds and non pendulous wattles on the male would be more desirable.
