Aw, thanks for the offer! I'll definitely keep you in mind next spring if the call ducks don't work out.
Sorry about wibbles. I bought a pair of call ducks from Lebanon two or 3 years ago. There are lots I choose from. Just make sure you get some that have at least been worked with a little. The ones I got you would have thought no one had touched them in their life. And I will b at Lebanon. I will never miss that show, it is my favorite!
Glad to hear this! Now I'm rather looking forward to this show! I will probably be there, it depends on how much homework I have at the time. But I'll most likely be there and will probably wear my Indiana BYC'er T-shirt.
I think I learned more about color genetics in this article, than I have in that last year and a half trying to figure them out!
Ah, I got all excited when I saw 'genetics', but alas, it's an article I've read already! Oh, well. It's a good explanation of phenotype expression, anyway.
She's beyond a doubt a girl. Her coloration is only feminine, there's no way she could be a rooster. She's getting close to laying if she hasn't started yet! I still think she's a Leghorn, too. She looks so much like my LBL when she was younger.
Well, I spent the afternoon shoveling all the bedding out of the coop and dusting it for grain mites. The girls spilled enough feed in there that when I had an infested bag I didn't catch in time, and the buggers got into the shavings bad. The good news is, I think I got them under control. The bad news is, I'm exhausted. Nothing a little ice cream can't fix.
P.S. counting chickens in German takes a lot longer than in English. That's your useless information for the evening. Bitte schoen.
Gramma always said english is easier, german is prettier sounding words lol. She would call the turkeys ahh dumkoff ohh! and several words I didnt understand. probably the best as I was so little LOL.
LOL Love those looks they are giving you
So adorable, love the last pic of the hens.
