I hope you find it quickly. Did you say what bands you use?

This is the coop so far. I'll put another coat of paint, then trim the windows with 2" x 2" treated wood to which I'll attach 1" construction wire.

They're growing like weeds. The oldest are 15 weeks old now and going through some serious changes. Between this smothering heat and molting, they don't look too good at the moment. They're at that awkward teenage stage when they shoot up and slim down. For height reference, the blue tub is 16" tall...

If I recall correctly, cmom uses elastic bands, and spiral bands. Not sure about zip ties, but I'm pretty sure she's mentioned these a time or two...  :idunno

Yes, I use #11 for my females and #12 for my males. I posted some pictures of some birds with their bands a few post ago. I use both the colored spiral bands and the numbered bands.

My last male I got from Matt can get any leg band I put on him off. I'll put one on him one day and the next day when I go out it's off.

I have used zip ties but not for many years. I mostly use the colored spiral leg bands and sometimes the numbered bands. I posted some pictures in a previous post a few posts back. I have been looking for the elastic bands but haven't found them.

The Rose Come is from my Dexter. My other male Junior, I put his eggs in the incubator quite late and they developed but only 4 out of 18 hatched and of them 2 survived. Don't know why they made it to lock-down then quit. I had quite a few blanks too and attribute that to possibly the heat as when I put those eggs in the incubator it was already in the 90's. If you want to do an experiment I tried, Put your RC male with 2 or 3 of your SC females and you should get both RC and SC. There is a breeder who has RC and about every 4 years he puts in some Reese/Mohawk SC in the mix. I tried it and got both RC and SC. I put them in my general population coop and pen but did sell them eventually.

@Ur-ur-ur-urrrVery nice coop and birds even with the cookoo in the nest.
Did you see my four pullets? What do you think?
Here is one of the two males I kept for a guard until his replacement arrives.

I'm going to put metal roofing on all of my coops. Right now the newer coops have metal roofs but the older ones are leftover rolled roofing we had from other projects. I'll replace the rolled roofing one coop at a time with metal. I won't have to worry about a ridge because all of my coops have shed roofs.

I agree with Fred on the two he pointed out. I'd still wait until they're 7-8 months old before culling any of them from the breeding program. Just my 2c...

From what I can see in the pics, that's not a bad looking cockerel. What is it that makes you want to replace him?
