I think the swelling is related to the torn tendons but I did look it up. I tried to post a picture but I have not been able to post pictures recently for some reason. I go through the steps but it does not show the code. At times my ankle is not swollen at all but that is because I keep it elevated all day and all night. If I have my ankle down, it will swell up. The compression wrap helps keep swelling out of my ankle quite a bit but the pad of my foot and my toes still swell up.

The sores are actually mostly healed now but I need a clear bill of health before my surgeon will schedule surgery to make sure it does not return after it is healed over. The 17th is the next available date if it does not fill up before I am cleared for surgery.

I had my daughter put a couple of black Orpington hens in with our Quechua rooster to make some olive eggers but I won't be keeping them because I don't like the olive colored eggs. I will mark their eggs to hatch so I can tell when the Orpington chicks end and the olive egger chicks begin. The eggs from the offspring will be light olive, I assume, not the dark olive eggs from a dark brown egg layer like the Marans.

The Orpingtons are beefy and the Quechua is lanky so hopefully the cross will make decent chickens. I might even give the Quechua rooster a couple more hens but for now I chose ones I am not keeping for sure and both have smaller combs so my hope is that the pea comb will be expressed since I think it is dominant.

I should be able to tell when the blue Orpington chicks end and the olive eggers begin since he is red and my Orpington roosters are splash. Hopefully they are not ugly birds with ugly eggs but I will mosy likely not even grow any out to see how they end up if I sell off my surplus hens. This is an experiment more than a project I want to start.

Hopefully the hens sell to someone who wants to hatch olive eggers or someone who just wants eating eggs and not fertile hatching eggs. The Quechua rooster already "contaminated" both hens so there is no turning back now. If there is a demand for the chicks I could do it again but I prefer to hatch purebred chicks.

26 - is like a full farm!

 

We picked up 2 white silkie chickens - wife had to have them since they made her laugh so much.   The kids loves handling them.  Not sure if they will lay, but just having them around is fun.

 

Now we are up to 6 -

I believe we can handle up to 4 more.  Building another 4 by 4 coop once the house is more organize.

Penny, are you wanting Olive Eggers?  I have two.  I know one is a roo and one is maybe a hen.  I am going in a different direction with my flock now much my husband's dismay.  If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Breeders - White Ameraucanas, Silver Ameraucanas, French Silver Cuckoo Marans, French Black Copper Marans, French Blue Copper Marans

Eggers - Black Australorps, Seramas, Silver Laced Wyandottes, Buff Orpingtons,

These are actually not going to be what are called olive eggers but I would not call them easter eggers either so maybe I should call them pea soup eggers! Or maybe we will just eat the "contaminated" eggs and not waste incubator space on them.

Making mutt chickens is not my goal, making space in the Orpington coop and giving my Quechua rooster more hens is my primary goal. These will probably just be a backyard mix of disposable chicks if we hatch them. We should still get Orpington chicks for a few weeks before we get the pea soup eggers. I could just sell these two hens at the pullet price to someone who is not going to hatch the eggs and then it does not matter which rooster they were with before they leave here.
