A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.

Two were busted so I'm hesitant to believe they were handled very well. Beautiful eggs though! Huge too!

Hi guys...it's been a while, June it shows, since I've been around...
We've been dealing with not so nice people in our tiny town. Someone got a hold of most of our flock. Found them with broken necks in a pile inside our run. Literally in a pile. My 2 Khaki Campbell ducks were killed at the same time. I'm down to 5 hens and an EE roo that like to roost up high, probably the only reason they weren't hurt. I'm convinced I got word outto the right people that we would be installing locks/cameras and WILL prosecute anyone who steps foot on our property. Have decided not to discuss this with our family because they worry :-\
Thinking about building the flock back up but haven't decided 100% though. No more ducks, for sure. They were my buddies and that hurt the most.
Anyway, anger is *slowly* going away and I need to be around some chicken awesomeness here.
I'll try to stay active and not have such a long absence from here again!post #37700 of 499332/12/15 at 6:36pmThread StarterQuote:Originally Posted by kittydoc
I'm very excited that we have chicks due to hatch in the next 2-4 days--Lav Orps, Black/Lav split Orps, and a few Jubilee Orps. I wish to heck it would warm up so I could get my Bielefelder hatching eggs. I was stunned that eggs I had marked as "likely frozen" still have little chickies inside them. My new rule is that if it isn't cracked, throw in the incubator!
Through most of the winter, we got 10-14 eggs per day (we use supplemental lighting). Yesterday, we got 21!!!!! I bet today we won't get squat, but for this time of year, that's a lot of eggs from my girls. I think I have about 30 girls, but suspect some of the 5 year olds don't lay much if at all.
If I get really bored, I may hatch out some hybrid eggs from my lavender cockerels and my mixed layer flock. Most of the layers are some color of Orpington, but there's also an Ameracauna (who stopped laying for a solid month, she was so traumatized by my putting the boys in with the layers) a Light Brahma, one Jersey Giant (who looks so fat I bet she's not laying), plus a few of my original Australorps.
Its really surprising! I had several eggs I was flat positive would not hatch. Really cold to the touch, probably were frozen but not cracked yet. I let them sit a full day, candled to look for cracks, then added them to the tray to be incubated that week.Getting a really good hatch rate so far.Quote:Originally Posted by racinchickins

Quote:Their feather pattern is similar because they are both based on wildtype partridge. Legbars are cream partridge and, as I recall, Bielies are red partridge. They also both have some sort of autosexing barring as well (but I don't remember the specifics on that anymore). So they are similar, but the Legbars seem to have more subtle markings as compared to the brighter colors on Bielies. There's also the size difference. The Bielies appear heavier and fluffier, while Legbars are more skinny and leggy. Most Legbars have a crest as well. They do look very similar as chicks, but not as adults.
Here's a side-by-side (EDIT: top-by-bottom? ) comparison of my Legbar and Bielefelder hens if it helps.
Wildtype partridge and its variants are probably my favorite colors in chickens. They're all so pretty!
(P.S., Wildtype, wildtype plus red, wildtype plus silver )
I've seen the Wildtype you show also called Gold Duckwing and the wildtype plus silver called silver duckwing. Does anyone know if this is also correct or not?
I think this is correct at least for the silver duckwing. Identically marked to my Silver duckwing OEGB hen, just much larger lol.
