Breeding Hambars/Hampbars

post #1 of 104
Thread Starter 

I'll be breeding Rhodebars and thought it would be a fun project to work on breeding Hambars as well.  Anyone else out there working on them?

Sorry here is the explanation


Hambars are autosexing just like the more known Legbars or Rhodebars... They can be created by using the same methods that created the Cambar, Legbar, and Rhodebar that are better known.

Hambars can be created by using a Rhodebar to a New Hampshire Red

If others have more info I would love for you to post

pictures and more info soon

It might help if you would explain what you are talking about. I hate these combined chicken names. I have no idea what they are.

BTW Japanese,mille fleur Jap project,  corturnix quail, some red chickens I got at TSC, one EE and 2 EE chicks, and some really poor pyncheons, 10 ducks and 2 welsh harlequin ducklings,  one pheasant hen, one pheasant chick, one MFC chick, 2 Norwegian Jaerhon chicks.

What the heck is a hambar?

Friends are the family you make for yourself.
There are no coincidences- only providences.

I will be here this coming spring after I get my Delaware project up and running. I still have to get me a few more New Hampshire pullets to work with and a good male breeder. I have a half-breed male (factory/production quality) to use right now and (factory/production) light red females, but I'm working on getting a good half-breed male out of good stock to cross onto my "real" New Hampshire hens for better type birds. I've been kicking this idea around for some time and finally getting things gathered up to get it up and running, hopefully sooner than later. smile

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, you can make a purse out of it, but it won't be silk. LOL
 
Maybe in about another 30-40 years I'll get this "being an expert" thing figured out by then. LOL
 
Still trying to practice Granny's advice 'if you don't have anything nice to say then keep it to yourself' LOL been at it for 45 years still don't have it down pat yet!

RC50 where are you?  Wonderful examples of Hambars on their ranch...

Read this on another site

The Hambar :
The Hambar was made in Canada and to my knowledge never made it over to the UK. They were the result of careful crosses between Redbars/Rhodebars and New Hampshire Reds during the late 40s early 50s.
