I picked up silvers and regulars, thinking if the silvers are weak (as I've read in places), some outcrossing vigor would help.  Good luck on your project!

If my Silver Penciled Bantam Wyandottes start laying by then I will hatch some of them.

 

I just loved the little bobwhites last year.  Looking forward to more quail.  I ordered me some egg scissors for easy opening/eating of the eggs.  Should be a fun project.  They're easier and quicker to process than chickens and you can make cute little stuffed quail and quail poppers and  (someone needs to get off the quail cooking sites).

Coolest thing bout Buttons is they can be encouraged to go broody fairly easily, unlike Coturnix.

Just picked up these vintage beauties for the contest! I hope you all don't mind a little cracking and paint gone. I think they have a Serama look to them. 


I Love You.
