Gosh Peach, I had no idea they were that far south. So glad you are OK.

But no one was killed but lots of people got hurt. in my town over 50 homes damages and 19 gone just slabs or basements left. They are still doing house to house in the area. We do live in the country. It went across the main roar to my son's school and they had to reroute kids around. Lucky for me mine was sick and at the doctors office at the time. I would have freaked out. They where not letting people down the road. Took me over an hour to drive home. The whole time wondering if I still had a home. It was just crazy. Power and internet was down till 10 pm.

Peach, this might help you with your possible color combinations that could pop up from your crossing of colors. there are 4 different languages to choose colors from, one is English. select your roo's color in the column on the left, and the hen's color on the right, then click on the 'to chicken calculator' just off to the side of your selection. i find a second tab will pop up and it gives me the background genes of the parent birds you are using, you can change them if you know that anyone is hiding a color that you know of. at the bottom of that page you can hit the button to 'calculate crossing' and it will show you your color outcomes of the chicks.

looks like the chicks from your splash cross with the silver laced might be blues

They look nice to me. :) I like the Lav Roo in there. He has good type. Maybe get a couple SQ Black hens to add in. wink.png

 I sold off all my birds. I'm getting out of poultry until 2016. We need to rebuild after a massive attack, and we need time to rebuild new pens and beef up security.

Thanks Stephanie! Hope all has been well with you! Will you be selling anymore Splash eggs this year? Sadly, I lost one of the gorgeous Splashes I bought from you last year about a month ago to the snow. So sad. She had the best splash coloring. Ugh.

 

Also, on another side note will you have any Call eggs available? I recently got a pair of Snowy Calls and I'm in love!!

Hi, so sorry to hear that. I won't be selling any eggs this season, as I need to hatch out everything I can and add to my stock (the best ones) and sell the ones I don't keep. I can sell you another Splash bird (Spring) and some Call ducks (Fall).

Aspen, It's probably just bad camera angles, but I'm promted to ask if your Self-Blues are purebred Cochins?  Where did your original stock come from?  I see in your bio that you have Ameraucanas - are these part Ameraucana?

Have been looking all over for breeding stock and cant find anything so I have decided to go ahead and set some eggs from my bantam barred roo, mottled hen and MF hen while I am searching.

I set 8 eggs from the past few days today so I am anxious to see what I get.  Does anyone know what I might expect from this trio?

Thanks

Tony

I am a cochin lover! I love their fluffy butts and feathered feet! They are the sweetest of all chickens.  I have mottled, columbian and buff columbian. I have mostley bantam but do have large fowl for the eggs.
