Houston are you birds first or second imports ?

We breed Swedish Flower Hens, Blue Splash Marans & Silverudd' Blues. Just beginning on Silver Ameraucanas.

Sounds like a road trip is in order!  Where did you current pullets come from?

Our flock is a blend of 1st and 2nd imports.

Here is my lovely pair. Finally got my rooster back from my cousin. Left the larger of my two isbar cockerels with my cousin. His comb had a funky dent in the front, plus my cousin said he was the mean one. This is the one I decided on. he is so much larger than the last time I saw him!

Well, wee late in the year of updating things but I figured ChicKat would like to hear it ^^;

We bought 10 isbar chicks this early spring, due to someone roll.png (not saying who) left a heat light unplugged we lost half. Time skip to fall we have five total, three hens and one rooster. Out of the rooster we have one that is blue with red leakage (obvious Marian influence) and a black one that built is...yea ahem stew pot. Out of the hens we have one lovely blue hen (but she lays brown eggs he.gif ) and two black hens, one playing green one laying white tinted. Well last week we had a coon visit, and our blue rooster was wounded internally and will be put down tomorrow probably as he isn't getting better hmm.png . So long story short this year was a sour start. We do still plan on acquiring more birds (may of hit the jackpot of incubators yesss.gif ) and hopefully grow our flock. Hoping to also hunt down the standard on the FB page so I can try to breed to standard also but is anyone actually doing it? And is there any future plans of having them recognize?

It's good to hear you post!! but it is sad to hear what you have been through -- that is just plain awful.  :th

 

Wow -- I hope that ALL the worst is going to be totally behind you now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Regarding Isbar laying the wrong color.... I actually have an Isbar who is a nice enough bird,  but she lays a brown egg (surprise).  Paired with a green-egg genetics male -- the offspring should lay green eggs.  For my part, I would prefer the farthest differentation and variety in the egg basket, so a brownish-green, a bluish-green, a speckled green.... for my viewpoint, all the better. 

 

Hooray for you for not being discouraged!
