Agreed

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Here's around 6 months. The Wyandotte influence really kicked in and I got a nice, meatier bird. I feed an all-in-one feed, around 18 or 19% protein and he filled out nicely on it.

 

 

Holy wow!

 

Very cool, he's beautiful. Here's hoping my boy gets there. :love

I could usually tell my Wyandotte crosses as they matured. The rose comb was the giveaway for me, as they were my only rose combed breed, but they were always a good pound or so heavier. Not so different to look at, but when you picked them up you could tell the difference. Here's a hen from the same cross...

She's very pretty, and she looks solid!
