y'all are too kind, and I'm glad I can make you proud. In that spirit, lemme tell you I have focused my efforts on my Bresse. I look forward to hatching nearly every egg I get from my hens. They may not have been extra tasty, but I have enjoyed playing with them. Yesterday I bought one of the fathers, and 18 more of their eggs so I can get a few more daughters of this generation to start with. I understand that the floppy combs are one of the hardest traits to breed out. So I opted for a slightly yellowed guy with a wonky, once stepped on foot, because genetically his comb is better. He's from my friend, so if he can't breed w his wonky foot, then we can work something else out. In the mean time
Aside from that, we went to the zoo and saw our first live Mandarin ducks. Who can't
And here is the set... These are all mine to do as I see fit. There's(darkest eggs) Cuckoo Marans, (light Brown) white Bresse, (green on left) my EEs, and (green on right) Isbars. Btw; I hatched CM from this breeder from darker eggs, in November, so they're fixn to end their cycle and molt in summer.
And an excerpt from my scenery that I took at a park yesterday for u Phil. Congrats on those ducklings!!!
Loves you, Turk... you're doing awesome!
