You bred Buckeyes? o3o

sweeeeet!

There this thing that my dad plans on doing with all our breeds that we'll be offering. I can't remember what it's called, but it's some tri-breeding thing where you switch out unrelated roosters with a flock of hens every year or something like that

spiral breeding I think?

I dunno

 

anyways

I changed things up a lot for my breeding project o3o

I have absolutely no clue if my Wyandottes are actually mating, because I have never once seen them even really do the mating dance or anything passed that

and my Favaucana doesn't lay much, so I wouldn't be able to get enough eggs to incubate and stuff

 

so I took out the Wyandotte rooster and put in a Swedish Flower hen rooster with a nice, large tassel

I kept my Favaucana in there

and I put in my White Crested Blue Polish hen and GL Polish hen in

so what I'm going to do is collect eggs from all them and incubate together. When the chicks mature, I'll pick out which cross I like best :P

Why yes, yes I am a guy.

That's really cool! Yeah I've heard of spiral breeding, and that it is quite complicated. Well good luck with your project!!

@Chickie- Awesomeness. We raise dairy goats, well, we did. We have a few still, but life's phasing them out. hmm.png
