My 8 White Leghorn pullets are the friendliest breed I have ever raised. And I have raised quite a few breeds, and some of my breeds include Silkies, EE's, Brahma's, Australorps, etc. But still, my...

Very good breed. I have one Buff Brahma pullet named Annika. Like I said up there she's very sweet and gentle towards people butt gets bullied easily by my older hens but she's still a baby so...

I purchased my first trio of Golden Duckwings from Cubalaya, who started this thread. He is so very knowledgeable, and was happy to answer all my newbie dumb questions. (I'm very much a greenhorn when it comes to anything beyond barnyard mutts.) I originally purchased a male/female pair. When the pullet died (my fault), he was super nice and arranged to send me two more little pullets. Both shipments made it all the way to Texas in great shape.
I have rather a large flock, but the Cubalayas are among my few top favorites. They are absolutely gorgeous, and very pleasant to work with and be around. Very easygoing. I can hardly wait to start hatching some babies from them.post #3323 of 357610/2/15 at 5:49pmpost #3324 of 357610/2/15 at 6:15pmpost #3325 of 357610/2/15 at 6:23pmI wasnt really looking for specific colors...I don't really know if I would be able to get any anyways...my mom would be the one to give the okay on that...I bought a pair of standard bbr's from a guys with the last name Zook...I can't remember his first name though...but they are still young...I was just curious about what breeders were out there and what colors they had...I am looking around to see what people have got is all...I really like the breed though...especially my pullet...she follows me around everywhere when I go outside. My mom is supportive with my chickens for mainly one reason...which is that I'm fifteen...and there are a lot worse things I could be into...and I LOVE my birds...we have 90+ chickens right now...hahahapost #3326 of 357610/2/15 at 6:29pm
Jim Zook? He is probably the best breeder of Cubalaya on the east coast for sure. I have whites, wheatens, blue wheatens and am working on getting some solid blacks. I don't currently have any for sale as I want them to mature more before I sell them. If I would not use them for breeders, I won't sell them for breeders either. I also have what I'm calling a fireworks color, none for sale in that line as they are difficult to get to survive to adulthood.post #3327 of 357610/2/15 at 7:07pm
They seemed to really like this one as it had wire netting on the floor and the ground hardly froze underneath it.
This one is 6' x 12'. I closed of the far end gable and left this end open, the Cubalaya were fine in it in sub-zero temps.
Here are a few ideas.
This one is 5 feet deep and 8 feet long. Metal on three sides and 1/2" x 1" wire netting on the doors. Definitely raccoon proof.
With some chicks in it.
Metal all around except for the window, it is a clear pvc type of material. I ended up putting 1/2" x 1/2" of netting behind it as extra insurance against raccoons.post #3328 of 357610/3/15 at 5:45amThose are definitely some nice coops,I will have to see about having some built. Also,is the fireworks color like the fourth pic in your post of young birds? I thought those were really cool. A friend of mine is working on a breed of chicken called a Papiseed to represent New York...her silver color looks a lot like that...and everybody wants them...she one time had a person who wanted her main rooster,and was offering like $30-35...but she turned it down,because she needed him for her breeding project...she hasn't quite finished yet,because she is having raccoon issues and other predators, but she is making a huge attempt to get them an actual breed...does Jim Zook sell his for good pricing? He sold me my pair for $25...but he said that he was doing it cheaper with youth to get the youth more interested in the breed...he also did that with the pair of Asil bantams I bought from him.post #3329 of 357610/3/15 at 8:52amQuote:Originally Posted by ccassidy18

He often sells them for $100 - $250 a breeding pair, so you certainly got a good deal.
This is the Fireworks color. A pair of youngsters.....
...and a 3 year old cock.

If those are fireworks,then what is the other one? I'm talking the cockerel in the fourth pic of your young ones. Also,I'm glad I didn't get charged $100-250...otherwise,I might not have even been able to buy them...I didn't know they were that much. Are his birds pretty good stock? I've never owner cubalayas until this pair that I have...also,I would post a pic of them,but we are having really rainy weather right now...so them,along with my other chickens don't really look their best...😂 but when it finally stops raining,which the end isn't really looking near,I will post a pic of them😀
