Blujems, glad you like your new Marans baby. I am so dang excited I cannot wait for these guys to start laying. I hope your trio makes it through winter and there are some good fertile eggs for more babies! Good job on the Cuckoo's, glad they are kicking it into gear! What kind of brown are you getting? I missed seeing you today too. Will get out there again soon
I gotta get my goat fix lol!
Red, I agree, the EE had some trademark shoulders starting. Much deeper than the usual orange. (sigh)
Sundance you make me laugh how hard you want to get a sizzle in my flock lol! I really really think those are cute but the only ornamentals I really will keep is the Polish. And the showgirl is my exception---because they are crossed with the turkens there is a lot less broodiness going on and a bit better laying from what I have read. I love the way the silkies look but had a bad experience with a crazy broody and am happy to have the break from that
I have more chickens than I should, I better pass. I have a small list of the two or three I want next Spring that will be on my to do list
Unless something happens to the ones I have anyway (knocking on wood!) I really have more out there than I should. Phoenix can attest to that, he came to pick up Blujems Marans today and he was like "whoa"! Trying not to get the hammer out again lol.. I still will need to pick and choose and narrow it down just a few before winter.
Don't ya hate it when the site goes down mid-message!?
