Thank  you for the compliment. I will be bring some birds that could be used for breeding if you are willing to cull hard. If you don't want to cull hard don't buy Columbians.

Bantam Cochins in Black, Birchen, Columbian and Buff Columbian. Now also have Sliver Penciled and Partridge. Working on a Silver Laced Project. Gold Laced project, and now a few White and White Frizzle.

I had already put my incubator up for the year, because I didn't need any more hens, and my turkeys are no longer laying. So I never tried to breed them, besides, the girls had just barely started to lay.

So, now my roo is sick, and my husband doesn't think we can save him. And I really really wanted to breed him and the girls this coming spring.  Someone on this site is selling that breed of hatching egg RIGHT NOW, but I typically don't brooder any chicks past early september, because it's so cold at night, it's hard to keep the brooder warm enough.  My brooder should be empty by the time these guys hatch, but they'd need to stay in the barn all winter, because they will be too small to mix with egg layers.  Is it stupid to get them now, just because I really want to be able to breed them this spring...  Am I being an idiot who has no patience? and I setting myself up for failure?


I have noticed in the past when I have late chicks they grow slower and Never develope their full potential. Has anyone else had similar results. I don't know if it is the temps or the reduced daylight.

Posted in the behavior forum too, just looking for input:
I have a mixed flock and so far everyone (that is near laying age) is laying with two notable exceptions. My 27 week old Welsummer is not laying and neither is my 25 week old Buckeye. My other 27 week old Welsummer has been laying for a month now, so I am not sure what to make of it. I know that both of these girls are pullets and not cockerels in disguise (the Welsummer looks IDENTICAL to her sister with the exception of her comb, and the Buckeye has no Rooster features). Both of their combs are still very pale and not at all swollen like my other pullets were (and still are) when they started laying. These are my first chickens ever so I am not really sure what to make of it. I also know for a fact that they aren't laying the eggs somewhere hidden. Thoughts, hints, anything? I am not too worried about the eggs, just curious as to why they might not be laying yet?

I'm going to guess they're just late bloomers.  I had an EE that didn't start laying until she was about 32 weeks.  Some are just like that.

My EE's were late bloomers as well.  I think it's in their breed.  Kinda curious how you know exactly which ones are not laying.  I have 40 something chickens and I not quite sure how I would ever till which ones are laying and which are not without keeping watch on them all day.
