I bought one of these when I first got my birds- I have since converted it to an oyster-shell dispenser- works wonderfully for that function in my coop. This past summer, I bought a second one to...
A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...

Wow such gorgeous eggs on this thread! Gives me ideas for the future:) Grey, plum, the possibilities... Now does anyone know if i cross an EE roo hatched from a blue egg but has a white egg father with a BCM hen...will i get an olive egger or will that white grandad dilute the egg color? Thanks in advance!
you should get an olive egger. 1 blue egg parent should pass the blue egg gene to the offspring.post #9657 of 104831/22/16 at 11:52amQuote:Originally Posted by thick chick

If you want guaranteed olives, the Ameraucanas would be the one to use. Some Easter eggers only carry 1 blue egg gene, so only 50% will be olive eggers, the other will be brown. I'm currently testing my easter eggers with golden cuckoo marans to see if they both are homozygous for blue.post #9658 of 104831/24/16 at 11:49amMy blue olive egger (Isbar X Marans) laid her first egg. All 3 are now laying and seem to be very productive. One has laid an egg every day for 6 days straight.
