Hound dog is doing fine . Ralphie I hatched 3 white chicks out of the Legbar over white Ameraucana . So it looks like that rooster is a carrier also . Taking a short break before I leave for the sale barn . I bummed up my knee a couple days ago . Painting again . Anyway yesterday was a light day due to the knee . I had a chiropractor visit to get back in place .
Jerry I don't know how good your stomach is but I started taking Aleve. Just need one. That stuff works like magic.
Here is the non-single comb BA's I am working on. The combs are hard to see, so I grabbed one and took a close up.
I think I am going to call these "Minnesota Black Australorp" Now I just need 4 other people to breed these so we can register them. A BA without a single comb will be great, I think.
Here area bunch of chicks about 2/3 are regular BA's 1/3 Minnesota BA's. I had 2 bands that fell off in the brooder in the dining room. Someone want to come check these out and separate the Minnesota BA'S?
When they get older it is easier to tell.
And finally, my last item for show and tell. I have told you all over and over about my panels. I have never showed you the dividing panels, (I don't think). These are also 24" (well 26 really) by 6'. With these I plan to line up 10 in a row next spring in 3 rows in my shed. That would give me 30 brooder panels and the flexibility to change them to whatever length I want by just pulling the door.
I love that close up of your black "minnelorp" . remember who your friends are when your rich and famous and recognized for your own breeds of chickens... Like Jerry .
Love the little panel door for the chicks. Wow! Very professional looking. But then again if you are a share holder in Menards...
