Ralphie and EJB have you put in your 2 cents on the breed focus on the home page? The chantecler.
On the what??
SO that would be a no for me.
I caught the one PC in a nest today! I am not sure what she was doing. I use wood chip and some of the birds throw the chips out. (little brats!)
She was in a nest with hardly any chips in it. There was one blue egg in the box, so I new it was not hers. ( I think I know who lays in that set of nests, only one bird uses it the rest use the front set). She would roll the egg under her, and sit on it. Then the egg would roll out and she would roll it until it got just where she wanted it..
Then sit and out would come the egg. This went on over and over. As he gets more frustrated with the egg she gets more aggressive moving the egg. I have had 2 eggs with a toe hole in them, I was wonder how that happened. I know now!
I finally took the egg from her, she left the nest as I reached for it. EJB did not have lappers! He does have chickens with OCD though. It was funny to watch and had she broke the egg it would have been worth that cost to watch her. This will be ending for her soon. I think she is going into a breeding pen this weekend of before. I am thinking of putting the 2 PC's and 2 EE in the pen. I figure Ed would like more women.
I can keep their eggs separate and I think the PC over EE's should be cool birds and maybe Olive eggs? I do not have a lot of olive eggs I have more blue ones.
