Well, this weekend was weights, measures and photo time! The last batch of incubator chicks are 10 weeks old now and I've selected my meat breeders. I'm still thrilled with their growth rates, personalities, temperaments and health.
Breeding cockerel #1: Simon - NN/White Rock mix: 51.78 ounces
Breeding cockerel #2: Monty - White Rock/Ameraucana-Dorking mix: 51.36 ounces
Breeding pullet #1: Senna - White Rock/Ameraucana-Dorking mix: 42.4 ounces
Breeding pullet #2: Mags - Australorp/Ameraucana-Dorking mix: 44.2 ounces
Breeding pullet #3: Willow - NN/White Rock mix: 40.04 ounces
Breeding pullet #4: Haley - White Rock/Ameraucana-Dorking mix: 39.89 ounces
@Kev - I'm mystified as to how Haley (pictured above) managed to remain pure white. Her father is my copper-colored Ameraucana-Dorking mix, the same as Willow's, Senna's and Monty's, and yet they're all colorful. She also has the same mother as Simon, also pictured above. (Chicken color genetics continues to amaze and confound me.)
