Barb~ I was looking at a 6 mos. old male Black Copper male (clean legged ) (I just can't seem to get rid of my extra cockerels right now......come next weekend I hope to return very empty handed after going to the bird auction...keep your fingers crossed) anyway, he has purple sheen and green sheen. The purple sheen is gorgeous. I have been doing some reading regarding the purple and green and the information I am able to find is good stuff. Thanks again for sharing that.
Debbi~ I will find out about the bird auction next weekend as that is when we plan to go. I sure hope I can off load all these extra birds. I have come to really like keeping my numbers to 30 adult birds instead of 150+. Much easier.
haha what?! 150+ is overwhelming?! haha I don't know if I'll ever be down to 30 adult birds, but I do hope to get to somewhere around 50 for my stock when I finally go through all the chicks to see who makes the cut for next year's breeding season.
Speakin of which, i've got some more photos of my middle hatch to get and to start sorting through the youngest hatch to get ready for the sale here next tuesday. I also need to work on building some more if time allows today. Chicks are on the grow again, so need to get some moved once again.
