If you know enough breeder friends, most of them will tell you that most of their champs are pulled out from the bottom cages. There are many dark horses in this hobby. The right term to use is, growing them out. Certain lines mature much slower than others. But if space and time is not an issue, Holland kits should be given a chance to grow. The best thing to do is not to look at them at all and they will surprise you one day.
That is the case with Fred. And since there is no successful buyer, I’ll be keeping him.
