Hi Morbius long time no hear from you I thought you left the country . nice to hear from you
shame about your old rooster is very far away from me .he will through nice GCM if mated to a BCM hens .his spear need to be cut .
what are you going to do with your dried chooks skin ?
eating them is good my friend but keeping a dried skin I don t know about that . I m curious
how is your GCM going ? mine are growing nice I m interested to work with a cockerel 2 of them are french type .I ll put some photos when I have time .need a new photos .
I'm still in the country. Spring is a very busy time for me. I have a large garden, lots of chickens and horses.
The old rooster is the one carrying the recessive white, unfortunately. I have to trim his spurs every 4-8 weeks. He's the one that I mated to my BCM hens to start a new line. He's a good bird, my wife likes him, so no stew pot for him.
I used to tie fishing flies, so I learned to tan the hides of animals to use. We are decorating our den in the house with my hunting trophies and old horse/barn stuff. The rooster skins will fit in with my turkey skins.
This is the bathroom attached to the den, which I'm redoing. I built the vanity for the sink from old barn wood. I'll be placing one skin on the wall here, as it looks like a barn/cabin wall.
My GCM are developing nicely. The youngest batch with the double barred one are getting larger as well.
I've got a 3 small batches coming up, with 8 or so nice hens. Only got 1 double barred though. I've got another 15 in the incubator after removing quitters and infertiles at 1 week.
I've got quite a bit going on. I'm working on getting rid of birds not directly related to my GCM breeding program.
