Did you look yet?  Good luck!

Java and Buckeyes are my main breeds.  I also have a RIR quad,  Bantam Araucanas and two lonely Silver Sebrights hens.  2012 will be a big production year, and it's been three years in the making.

barley fodder for chickens & goats; in nestable plastic trays, cover barley with water & a squirt of bleach for 2 days, drain, rinse 2x day, nest trays to day 3, then open to air, to chickens day 5, goats day 7.

Barley from www.azurestandard.com

Grains like pressure from above for 3 days, as if buried.

I've got mottled java's that are 2 months old then another batch that is 1 month old.  I'm trying to decide on whether or not to get black java's next, or white java's, can't decide.

I have 2 half Java chicks in the brooder from my first test hatch last week.  They are completely black with yellow wing tips and have red fuzz around their eyes.  The hens were red Dixie Rainbows.  The second test hatch is starting today so we may have a few more half java chicks arriving soon.

I did candle the Black Java Eggs last night.  I have 3 clears and obvious movements in all the rest!!!  yippiechickieyippiechickieyippiechickie I'm more than a little excited! lau

Here is a recent photo of my rooster. he doesn't usually carry his head back so far, he was just thinking about hopping off the nest box there and well... he looks funny in this pic like he is part cochin or something. My question is, he is the only roo I have, is there too much white in his tail?

Very pretty boy.  I'm not sure about the white as I never looked into the mottled java's.
