At least the 12 cemani, monkey spit-11 cemani eggs are doing good.

 

Yay for 11 going strong!  :yiipchick

 

 

 

Great ideas on patching those cracked eggs!  I've always just used candle wax, any color, any scent, with mixed results.  However, ironically, the last one I didn't bother to fix at all and it still hatched.  Go figure!

No reason to keep ugly butt.  I suspect he's ugly due to wing patch.  I ended up culling every last Isabel boy I had because that dreaded wing patch cropped up bad this year.  I went back to splits to try to get a good rooster with good (dare I say superb?) feather quality.  I now have one single hopeful Isabel cockerel growing out.  I have a lot of hope on him, but if he doesn't work out, I still have the splits.  I WILL get there!  I had to draw a line on hatching so that I wouldn't have chicks inside over the winter.

 

I did get two funky combed pullets this year.  Probably from crossing single comb to rose comb.  I guess the predicted results are not as straight forward as people want you to believe.  But they're still pretty girls and will be good layers.  Here is one of my funky combed pullets right after getting a drink and shaking water droplets around.

yep, same type of comb. Lol. Love the pic. Honestly I haven't looked close enough to see if he has the wing patch or not. He may grown out of his ugliness but he is pretty rough.

The pullets all seem to have pretty nice feathers but that lowly cockerel doesn't. Figure ill keep a brown split boy to run with the isabel girls and try for a good isabel cockerel next year. I cut myself off from hatching. Normally I shut down in October. I forced myself to at the end of July cause I want all birds fully capable of handling the weather by December 1. I had some hens hatch off some stuff then abandon it last month so I'm dealing with those few stragglers but they are growing and adjusting well. All if my isabel came from the brown splits I hatched and got mailed from you. The isabel cockerel I hatched from you did not survive last winter. I'm not sure why but he was just dead one morning.
