be if she was mine,
That is an achievement my friend .
what the colour of her egg ?
They only lay 4s.
I have a really dark laying blue copper, that I'm going to try to work her darkness into the line.
I also need your opinion on continuing using my F0 rooster. I got him alone and mated with BCM to develop the line. F1, first batch had 7 cockerals and 2 pullets. I saved the best rooster and kept the two hens. I have about 10 or so f1s second batch, as well as some f2s in the incubator from the f1s. I'm wondering if I should phase him out.
He developed a white tail feather and 2 white wing feathers after this last molt.
His tail is high.
He has a small sprig and 2 tiny points on his blade.
Carries recessive white gene.
Good coloration, large body size, not aggressive, nice leg feathering.
My GCM flock = F0 double barred rooster, F1 single barred rooster, 2xF1 hens, 3xF1 single barred cockerel, 1 double barred F2 cockeral, 3 f2 single barred cockerel, 5 F1&2 pullets and 15xf2s in the incubator.
So I have a few replacements, but Im a little unclear if I should keep using him.Edited by morbius18 - 5/26/16 at 7:22pm
