I´´m really excited- got 30 SFH hatching eggs directly from Sweden. Candled them 3 days ago (day 8) and 24 were developing! Hoping for one good-looking roo and at least 3 girls. The breeder also has crested, which I don´t have yet, so would be really happy about a couple of crested girls.
Awesome Alpine! I've always liked your birds but I'm curious to see what you get out of those directly from Sweden.
We only had 2 and lost one a month or so ago. The remaining we have is called Crazy Hair - she has a nice crest and is a mahogany brown based and now that she has more flowers after a light molt she is pretty. Not a friendly girl though and at the top of the pecking order, below our roo. I set her eggs last month and none were fertile, inspite of his efforts (he's a BCM). It is fun to watch her antics though and she lays a loverly cream tinted egg when she lays, about 3-4 a week.
