Altered Comb Black Australorps..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have been working towards a BA with a pea comb, because of the damage their combs take here in the winter.

 

I am on the 4th Generation now and they are looking really good, I am just curious if anyone else has down anything like this?

 

 

My original cross was a Black EE and a  BA.  They are looking very close to BA and the eggs color is back to the right shade (or close).

 

I will post pictures if anyone jumps on this thread.

I will get you some.  Tomorrow, I just had my NPIP hatchery inspection and feel beat, sort of like I  had a colonoscopy.

You have to look really hard to tell the old from the new.

 

I have decided to name my new breed  "Minnesota Black Australorps".

 

 

I had 2-3 lose their bands marking them as Minnesotans.  They are mixed in with 25 others, Would you mind coming here and figuring out which is which?
