Now that you say that, and I look at the map - it makes me want to go to Nacogdoches to the Azalea garden at SFA U.  I guess this year their plant sale is April 2.  They have beautiful plants for reasonable prices -- but the good ones go fast.  That is sure a beautiful part of TX and of the whole country too. Here people's azaleas are blooming and people have narcissus - Redbuds are out, and one of the cool things is that wisteria is all over the place in the end of Feb....
That's  one of the great things about BYC - you meet people far and near..  Davy Crockett NF looks huge on the map!
Feel free to chime in any time that you have some view or insight to add!  Thanks.
Her's a list of some interesting genetics sites/links for reference.  Anyone who has more/others  - please post them so people reading this thread can track them down. Thanks.   ---->    http://kippenjungle.nl/basisEN.htm   <--------   http://articles.extension.org/pages/65363/poultry-genetics-for-small-and-backyard-flocks:-an-introduction http://kippenjungle.nl/sellers/page0.html http://www.edelras.nl/chickengenetics/
 When I first encountered chicken genetics it was like alphabet soup - but there are some very good 'tutorials' on the internet.  I'll list some that have good basic stuff -- and then after you beat your head against the wall for awhile -- it will suddenly click into place like pieces of a puzzle.sounds good.
THIS GIRL REMINDS ME OF ME WELSUMMERS! PRETTY TOO   Hi Kiki!   You have a good eye -- because Wesummers are he same 'wild type' plumage as brown leghorns, from what I know.  Technically she is a brown leghorn I'm pretty sure (well her mama hen was a Legbar and she lays blue eggs.  Because of the way the Barring gene is passed along, she has no barring gene, but she does have 1 recessive lavender.  (one recessive cream too -- which is something I will need to breed out...
A couple years have gone by since I left the club -- so I have no idea what's going on now.    This link  http://www.creamlegbarclub.com/99-contact-us-for-more-information   Used to generate an alterting email to the board of directors to answer requests.   Good luck with your quest. 
Wow !  a sight to see....and it won't be long now before it is spring!  I'm fixing to set more eggs and there are some already in lock down -- and then another set just 6-days behind those.  The project that I'm working on means that 7/8 of the chicks I hatch this spring will need to be rehomed.     Talked to my local feed store -- and he said that after he sells out the thousands that he has already contracted - he would be willing to take some of mine off my hands....
You know that country really well then.  It is so beautiful in April when al the wildflowers bloom. DeWitt county is the 'wildfower capital'  of TX you know.   It is pretty with the live oaks.  BTW, I love your avatar.... it is a little bit like my brand, two K's facing each other so there is a diamond in the middle with a stick on each side.  It is registered in DeWitt County (but probably expired by now -- you were supposed to reregister every 6-years).  And registered...
Now you are talking the real nitty-gritty of a small town!   Population 315.  Everyone knows everyone.
