I have more pic updates!
Here is the pair of dun laced.
FMP, I am totally in love!!! What did you use to make these, and when can I get some eggs from you??? LOL
We started out with a silver laced rooster on dun hens. We kept all the females and bred them back to a silver laced which gave mostly laced birds (silver or dun laced) and a couple solid dun or black birds. So basically two generations. We will have eggs in the spring, the rooster will be in with silver laced hens and the pullet will either be with the silver laced rooster or the dun laced rooster.
Thanks for the compliment on the phoenix, we will be crossing him on light brown hens and getting all creles next year!

When can I get Porloff eggs? LOL Beautiful chickens. Once they are old enough to lay and actually get here, I'm going to try to mix Mottled Javas and Barred rocks. How creative.
Here is our silkie mixes half bantam buckeye/white or black silkie we thought they looked like partridge silkies but sadly we couldn't keep them because one was a boy and one would mate with the girls and be mated with by the boys?
