    *********************************************************************

    F1s were bred together to get the F2s.
    F2s hatched September 2011.

    I hatched 200, and ended up with 3 females to continue on to the F3s.
    F2s were:
    Barred;Black;Delaware;Split gold/silver males;Buff Columbian; Barred Buff Columbian & Silver Columbian, as expected. I gave away most of the Barred and Blacks.

    Here are a few of them in January 2012.

    Disregard the Silver Laced Wyandottes. They are not F2s.

    I'm not Kathy but you don't want to use a RIR pullet, you want to use a New Hampshire. Maybe you would get something like a Delaware since RIRs and New Hampshires are similar but that's not the combination that gave us the Delaware.

    Kathy,
    I am just getting started doing the same thing you have done.
    I have some 8 week old barred rock roosters and some 3 week old RIR pullets.
    I want to breed the BR roos with the RIR pullets to get some Delawares.
    Any advice you can give would be appreciated!
