I love this product. I cannot believe no one has reviewed it yet. I started with the chick version- and moved up to this. While at work all day, I wanted to keep my girls busy. This product is...
I bought one of these when I first got my birds- I have since converted it to an oyster-shell dispenser- works wonderfully for that function in my coop. This past summer, I bought a second one to...
A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...

Thats what I have been saying about purebreds since day one. Breed/color is the same thing, because most people recognize breeds by their colors.post #12415 of 180293/1/16 at 9:46am
How did you get a subscription? OR is this an old copy?
I tried online but its "coming soon"post #12416 of 180293/1/16 at 9:46ampost #12417 of 180293/1/16 at 9:56ampost #12418 of 180293/1/16 at 9:58ampost #12419 of 180293/1/16 at 11:01am
yeah you must well connected. I have been looking around online. not easy thats for sure.
Seems like I can purchase individual copies but I cannot find subscriptions to it.
I cannot find the online version on the other sites like Pinnon farms, red fox etc. Even tho they said its available for online viewingpost #12420 of 180293/1/16 at 1:17pmQuote:The name represents the style of the bird. Sweaters are generally much different than say a "ruble" hatch. Even now though most would say the rubles aren't the same as they used to be. Probably true with every single bird out there. The idea is you wouldn't expect to see a ruble hatch that's extremely high station that has more of an in air style. Just the opposite.
Besides just crossing two lines and calling it your own is fine and dandy but that's generally not how it was done. It would take years to get the cross as good consistently as the original two lines, it's assumed they were good to start with. From everything I've heard and read it usually takes multiple infusions of one line or another year after year with strict culling all but the best. Easier said than done. D*mn near impossible for the average backyard breeder with only a handful of birds. Could probably get there quicker the more you hatch, but obviously you'd be culling a whole lot more too.
