I have going on Swedish Blacks hens who culls are going tout be bred into our silkies to make black skinned meat birds to be sold to the local market
I have Self blue OEGBs I would like some sorta direct on helping their build (I never seem to be able to sadly get help on the site if I post about them on their thread)
The Isbars coming in March are gonna be a wait and see if we like them as a breed or put them in our laying flock.
Then my pride and joy, Bantam Kraienkoppe. I been working on them with a help of a fellow breeder but I am game for suggestions on how to breed down weight, and breeding methods?
I have no help for you but I'm sure some here do, lot's of informative people here.
I do hear what your saying. I'm sure there is some good ones but the breed specific threads I've been on are pretty much dead threads, sometimes breeders pop on just long enough to say your birds suck, cull them all and pay $$ to buy theirs or so and so's with their noses stuck up in the air.
On the Jersey Giant thread someone was looking for good birds and I suggested Maria's Jersey Giants, she has a famous old line she took over and has been breeding for SOP for decades, and is the only breed she has. I was blasted for suggesting her, 'costs too much, can get better birds cheaper here!'.
No one spoke up and offered birds or eggs for sale!??
Sussex thread seems to be more for taking pictures of your pretty birds dressed up in sweaters sitting on your dinning room table....
Only breeders and chicken eaters here, and lots of good info!
