Non-speckled specked sussex? - Page 2

post #11 of 15

Hi Michael,

 The Golden Salmon is very rare (BBR). Most don't have feathered legs yet. But you are right about the legs/feet. They are either slate or white. Not yellow. Welsummer.

 Thanks,

 Karen

( I don't agree with the slate legs/feet. I think they should be White as d the French.).

Walt Boese strain and Tewart flock of Pure English  Light Sussex

My flock now resides with Farmer Karl in PA.   

  I know he will do well by them. Karl is a knowing poultry man.

RIP Hellbender, my friend. Good friend, good heart, gone too soon.

Hello, Karen. Thanks for the information. I've had Marans and know about their general characteristics so I knew that the bird in question was not a Marans, but I've never had Golden Salmon Marans.

I tried 5 times to get started in GSM. What a mess. So many folk don't understand one doesn't "create" GSM. They winnow out colors to get it instead. Bev Davis has the right ideas. She finally got past the autosomal red  and got it out of her GSM project birds. She is very close to finally getting it right. Impressive. there is a pure flock up in Grayling Mich. with Arla Meininger. But t's a closed flock and as far as I know she hasn't shared her birds with anyone. ( cept maybe Bev, but have to ask Bev about that).  I waited 2 years and no success with that. I don't think Marie Cantrell in MT has any any more. I know Walt Boese in MT got rid of a GSM hen he had years ago.

 Best,

 Karen

Thank you all for your helpful response.  Since I got them from Rural King I am sure they are simply Welsummers.  I was not familiar with the breed but after reading about them I believe that's what they are.  

 

Appreciate all the responses!
