You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, you can make a purse out of it, but it won't be silk. LOL
 
Maybe in about another 30-40 years I'll get this "being an expert" thing figured out by then. LOL
 
Still trying to practice Granny's advice 'if you don't have anything nice to say then keep it to yourself' LOL been at it for 45 years still don't have it down pat yet!

Hey there Mike I may be interested in the Dels PM me with some details (a few picks and how many of which and what and of course $$ not that I'm cheap or nuttin' lets just say LIMITED yeah that's it LOL). If I can't do it for some reason or another I might can get you some help with them as I'm in pretty good standings  with the Dell lovers that are into them at the time.

Julie, Arrow (O'neals) sells a game-bird(28% I think?) feed if you have a distributor of that brand down around there I'm sure there is as they deliver far and wide.

The feed store down the street from my house sells the Arrow brand. I sorta prefer the Gamebird Startena. It's higher in protein.

Hope everybody's doing well & enjoying the weekend-- it's nice weather for sure! wish we could save up some of this cool-ness for the coming months!!

here's the scoop on their bloodline - I edited some of it out - I know from lurking on the RIR thread that Roy Autry is a pretty well known breeder, don't know about George Ryan line but they look to be nice birds, & as I said, I've never had such a nice, healthy hatch of chicks - I am definitely keeping some of them for myself - if they lay like they look - A+ for sure!

Breeder is "luckypickens" on BYC:

"Just added two new roosters from Roy Autry's line to my pen of 13 hens. 
These are my favorite of all the big breeds and are a beautiful deep dark mahogany red.  They are a show strain that has been raised and shown for over 50 years by the George Ryan Family in Arkansas and have won numerous Blue Ribbons and Best of Show at our county and state fair by them and myself".

Well guys we had an exciting day yesterday around the house. Yesterday morning while I was dropping feed for the horses, I checked one of the mares that is do to foal on Saturday and notice that she had started to wax over (I saw milk). Last night while I was cleaning the stalls and feeding this mare who is normally quite, kept walking around me in the stall and would not stand still so I knew she was close real close. I told my wife that I thought we were going to have a baby tonight and with-in an hour and a half this is what we had.

The foal was born at 8:45 these pics are from about 8:46 to 8:55. All three of us my wife, my little girl and I got to watch everything from start to finish. If you know anything about horses most people never get to see this at all.

 

Never the less it was a very exciting evening last night for us all and we get to do it again in about 3 weeks!!!!

 

Chris
