Like Fred's Hens, I'm now concentrating on other breeds such as Heritage Rhode Island Reds and Rhode Island Whites. I am breeding for show quality birds. Good luck and have fun...

Thank you for such a great summary of your findings. I am very new and still trying to understand where it is burned into my brain. My birds so far who have gone off toward the silver side are big bodied also. This project fpor me essentially is lessons on selective and predictive breeding. I have already started hatching some fine purebreds I look forward to breeding, Isbars, Bielefelders, Lavender ORP and BCM.. I am having such a fun time and I am greatful to have BYC to share with!

Barred Plymouth Rock, French Marans, Bresse, Bielefelder, Appenzeller Barthuner, Chantecler, Sumatra, Serama, Silkie, Modern Game, Blue Isbar, Cornish,  and the 4 ISA Browns who got me into this mess in the first place.

Question for the breeders ... do you separate the hens/cockerels you want to breed, collect their eggs, and reintroduce them back to the flock, or do you always keep them separate?

 

I have a mixed flock of RSLs, Tetra Tints, Marans, and I'd like to breed the Marans (and try some other combos), but worried about reintroduction them after separating them for breeding ...

Hi Aussie-Chook,    I'm not sure about reintroducing them back into the flock.  Be sure to keep them separate at least 3 or 4 weeks to make sure that the correct cockerel is being bred.  Hens store semon for up to a month.  :D

Moved to the Portland/Vancouver area in September.  BIG and beautiful.
