I think JJ and Ethel are rusty slates. Earlier R2Elk listed the possible offspring from their mating, it was amazing how many they can have and how many they did have. I feel so bad I lost Ethels 5 babies she raised, they were all different colors. Next year I will be mating JJ to his daughters I think I to see what I get. I have a red and a reddish one besides the rusty slates.
I do not know colors as well as Silkie or R2elk, (heck I have no idea about them) but I love my calico flock.
I hope to get the NPIP stuff done for next year so I can have a bigger market for babies. I have no idea if anyone else wants a calico flock, but I love it. I still love my self blue and blues but the others are more interesting.
