6 eggs from the control group
4 eggs from the free ranging chickens
78F degrees till noon then the wind picked up and went till 2100 hrs 9PM, and I spent the rest of the night picking up cages but the big pen I am building stood strong so I was happy as other objects were tossed all over in the winds and even some tiles were blown off the shed's roof so I will defiantly need to fix that before it rains again ...
When I got back home from town I found this in the incubator chirping away
I have been working with my Spangled Russian Orloff's for several years now and I think I've finally started getting what I want and this is how my pullets are looking
I had to put this pullet in the barn for several days to let her calm down so I could take her picture and she is still not waiting in any place long enough for me to get a decent picture of decent quality to show off her spangling but her feather texture is just awesomely smooth like some kind of heavy silk now if she fills out with a full white beard next year it will make her next to perfect
It always makes one happy like me when they can see their breeding program finally working the way they would like
Alright everyone enjoy the weekend
