Okay I know that there are Buff Plymouth Rocks, but I would like to know how I could create a Buff Columbian Color in Plymouth Rocks.
I like the Buff Columbian color better than just buff.
I realize that it would be years to get them up to perfection. I would be dedicated to the project if...
I think I'm going to set on Christmas Day for a mid- January hatch.
Since I missed the New Years Hatch-A-Long this year due to not getting any eggs.
My hens have picked up a little and I think I can gather two or three dozen between now and Christmas to be able to set.
I wished there was...
I'm starting this thread for all the Calico, Aloha, and Mottled Naked Necks.
Back in 2012 my brother ordered Naked Necks from Cackle Hatchery.
He received the 15 pullets he ordered and 5 cockerels that were also ordered.
When he decided to sell out if his chickens I took over the Naked...
I have a hen that in her tail feathers are some of the bigger ones are like upside down. Meaning that the stem is faced up instead of downside like normal.
I hope that makes sense.
Anyway is this a genetic defect? I know echo her parents are. The dad has several offspring besides her...
I have started a project for myself. There will be a few culls that I will sell off. I'm not really trying to start a new breed or anything just trying to roll my two favorite breeds into one. Naked Necks and Easter Egger/Ameraucana.
I started out with:
And got only one pullet:
Since this is the genetics thread:
Is wheaten, red, mahogany and ginger all part of the wheaten coloration? Caused by the same gene?
Is there anyway to breed Duckwing out of wheaten?
What color would you call this?
She looks to be Silver Duckwing, but doesn't have a salmon breast and...
I have a, what I think is a hen about 20 weeks old. (S)he sings like a hen, but looks like she has saddle feathers. Do hens get them sometimes?
Would you ( if you had her) use her for breeding. Reason I'm asking is that she is a very beautiful tricolored. Dark red, either black or a very...
First off I don't know how folks can get those great pictures of their chickens. I tried but this was the best I could get.
I am trying to get a new line of Naked Necks going for myself mostly.
So here is what I'm working with:
This is a Salmon colored rooster, he came from Cackle...
Okay so I've read that the White Holland is extinct. Reading from Wikipedia I found that these are the breeds that were used to creaste them:
White Leghorns, Rhode Island Reds, New Hampshires, and Lamonas...
Is there anyone out there remembers Clinton Hatchery in Clinton, MO?
I do that was where I ordered my very first chicks from that I ever ordered.
I heard and found out that they went out of business, just got to thinking about it. I think it was about 30 years ago that I ordered from them...
Who has the best Blue Ansdalusians?
These are the hatcheries that I know that sell them:
Murray McMurray ( Worried about this one because of shipping isses). Do they offer Overnight or Next Day?
I am in the beginnigs of a project:
I am trying to create a White chicken that lays like a Leghorn, but I want it to lay brown eggs, and be big.
So far, just getting it started so it will be awhile before I'm ready for the next step. I have crossed my White Plymouth Rock rooster to...
