So it all started by accident, I accidentally got a chick that The owner had no idea what breed it was, turned out to be a nankin, then I fell in love with the mottled Java and realized that both breeds are rare. So It has begun, I have 5 very little mottled Java pullets and a mottled java baby boy on the way here! I plan on breeding them and trying to preserve this breed as well as as many as I can of other rare/endangered breeds of chickens.
I don't care when the chicken lays an egg or crows, just as long as they are happy and healthy and well loved. People who don't want Java's or other slow maturing breeds are impatient and don't really understand the value in these chickens.
I plan on doing my part in bringing this beautiful breed back from the rare/ endangered/ unwanted list and help educate those who won't raise them because they are slower to mature in some ways then all these hybrid chickens, that there wouldn't be all these hybrid chickens without the original chickens who were here long ago. :)
I would love to get other advice about Java's so feel free to PM me your views of the breed so I can put together a educational paper to help the kids around here learn about them. Oh yes and name suggestions Please! Thanks!
Here are my First Beautiful babies of the breed. 5 Mottled Java pullets!
I think I will call this one Cruella as for the other still haven't decided!
