I have a leghorn hen and a beautiful golden duckwing ameracuana rooster that few years ago I got a little cream colored hen out of. She lays huge green eggs and hardly eats anything. I still have the leghorn hen and the golden duckwing Ameracuan rooster. She has to be over 4 or 5 and he is at least 6 yrs old. She gave me 2 eggs a day last summer and is still giving me one egg a day now. The little cream colored hen with ear muffs and lays the biggest green eggs every day.
I have been wanting to get more hens out of this cross before I lose this line. The old man rooster is still protective but his libidio is pretty much gone. I do have an almost identical son that is doing dad's job though. So I have been hatching eggs here and there out of this line so I think some of these are out of them and some out of my RIR's.
These late chicks are all from the same hatch. Some of them are 3 or 4 days older then the litle one in the lower left corner. The other ones in the hatch have already been moved to the brooder outside.
This one is quite little compared to the others so I am going to have to really protect it.
