Somehow I can't reply to your PM anymore, says only 2 per day, so I am writing here....Tuesday sounds good! And like the pics, what are the other pics you posted? any of the delawares? any rooster? really like your chicken pictures a lot!!! definitely let me know when you have more, might even take some chicks...would love a local trade, rather than ordering from somewhere I have no idea what it is...and love this Forum...BYC IS AWESOME!
Your welcome and welcome to the forum (our little part anyway) Please dont ever be afraid to ask anything at all. Between all of us here we have probably made all the mistakes there are to make and arn't afraid to share. Just ask my wife how many times I have rebuilt walls and moved things around the shed turned coop .
A lot of the pics are from past chickens or projects I was playing with. I am currently only working on easter eggers, olive eggers, and a couple of dark egg layers. My primary rooster is mr. kellogs and is a one year old Welsummer. His cotton tail is too bad to show, but he is a really good rooster and carries a strong dark egg gene (for lack of a technical explanation). My pullets include a welsummer, a black copper marans, a chochin cross olive egger, several easter eggers, and some young Ameraucanas coming up. The cochin cross is brooding out 7 chicks right now and the incubator is full of 2 dozen eggs. Out of the week old chicks and the eggs....there will be an equal chance of dark brown, green, and olive layers, with a smaller chance of a pink or blue/green egg layer. That list did not include what you are getting...only what I will have left. I should have chicks ages 3 days to 3 weeks for sale by the time the fall show rolls around for Cocke county. At this point those first runs will be a grab bag where everyone is together and people will have an equal chance of getting dark brown, green, or olive layers....but I will make them pretty cheap because of that. By next spring everyone will be tagged as to their chances of being an olive egger or not. The others will be either a dark brown layer or a blue layer.
Here is Mr. Kellogs
