This means it seems 10 to 20 degrees colder than the actual temp. Ralphie, I am sure you remember those days and are glad that you have moved to the Minnesota Banana Belt!
Jerry, that is why it is called fishing as opposed to catching. Those scaled rascals often don't wish to cooperate?
Ralphie, good to read that your Dominique hatch was such a success. On the other hand the Buckeye hatch was not too good. How many of the White Sport Legbars do you have at this point?
Are you still attempting to sort out which birds are producing them, or do you have that figured out?
EJB, I remember going years at a time without seeing the sun, unless I drove to Cromwell or Floodwood. Winter jackets were never put away.
Jerry, what kind of fish di you get?
I have my second Buckeye hatched!
I have 2 living white sports, Murphy's law has struck with them. One Fail to thrive, One trampled in a chick stampede. and the last one committed suicide.
I have 2 CLB roosters, I have each rooster in a pen with 3 or 4 hens. I have not had a sport in awhile, so I took the roosters out and changed the group they were in. I mark the eggs when I gather them so I know which group they are from. Once I get the group down I will find the individual hen. I have a person that wants to buy a group of mature hens, but I am refusing to sell them until I know which one has the white babies, and even then they will not go cheaply....... When I sell the eggs I ask people to tell me if they get a white one.
