The OGM splash marans looks like a cockerel. The Andalusians from HFR, the Buff Orps from Piglett and Kevs naked necks are all healthy.
Lots of lavender orps BBS orps RIR BBS Jersey Giants and barred rocks.
glad to hear that the buffs are well OZ
looks like i'll be buying 4 or 5 muscovy chicks
i got 11 good looking eggs out of 12 but not a 1 hatched
the shells were super thick i wonder if that had something to do with it
because in with those duck eggs i had buff orpingtons
100% of those hatched so what's up ???
anyhow i can get some chicks for $10 each so i guess that is what i'll do
OZ the lemon cuckoos were no good :(
not even a pip, not one made past day 18
mostly pullet eggs & all clears/ blood rings
the 1st ones i got were from adult hens
oh well life goes on.
our 4 bronze turkeys are doing well
i need to make them an A-frame turkey tractor out of some 2x4's that i have
have a safe trip back
