    where do I get good Speckled Sussex stock

    Check your APA club out for local stock first, in case you can buy quality stock from a show breeder nearby. If you don't have a local breeder, I would recommend buying shipped chicks over hatching eggs. Costs more up front but better results usually. Check out "Waltz's Ark" a breeder in...

    What Breed Is This Lovely Lady?

    FYI in terms of location, Alohas have been bred in Oregon, Arkansas, Kansas, and most recently Texas, and primarily Arizona. Some were sent to California years ago but did not really take off there. So if you are in one of the states listed, you may run into an Aloha. (If you live anywhere...

    What Breed Is This Lovely Lady?

    Here is a link to a photo I found online of an OEG Bantam. Check out the shape of her cheeks, the comb, etc. I think this looks very similar to the found hen: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/d5/db/d9/d5dbd920d77428fff5b4c57cc840b79c.jpg The extra spotting is still Mottling - just a very...

    What Breed Is This Lovely Lady?

    Just saw this mention and came here to check it out! No, she's not an Aloha, looks to be an Old Engish Game Bantam. She has the trademark "banty-ness" to her build. However, the early Alohas DID have a bit of Game blood in them - via several mixed breed hens that I found locally (in South...

    Also I'm taking photos of a few of the adults - already sold off about 10 adult hens because I have so many nice young hens growing out. Here's a few adult hens that are still left here, I will be hatching out chicks and selling eggs from these for another month or so before the heat will shut...

    Here are a couple of pics of some "teenagers" wandering my hard at the moment. The best of about 40-ish chicks raised. Only about 3 months old. Still a long ways from seeing how they will turn out, and we still have the hot summer ahead, poor babies!

    Chicks look fantastic! HeChicken, would love to see more (current) photos of your own line - how are they looking this year? (Mottled chickens develop more white as they age, so curious to see how yours are looking.) Are you going to hatch any chicks from your own stock this Spring to...

    The NEW Crazy 24hr AUCTION thread

    I think I could list Aloha and Aloha NN project eggs sometime next week if anyone's interested. Mottled large fowl, kind of like Swedish Flower but not really related to them at all. (They are about half Sussex bloodlines.)

    The Aloha Chicken Project

    I wanted to share that there is FINALLY a pair of what I would call "finished" Alohas! Last year, I had a tragic incubator mishap that killed most of the eggs from my best breeder pens. I had to re-stock last minute with basically "whatever" eggs were left. So my own progress last year was...

    I did set up a person in Oregon with some shipped chicks last year, her name is Katie but she's on FB not on here, I don't think? I bet she could help you out!

    @HEChicken - I just tried to send a message, not sure if it got to you, the mail system is a bit confusing to me on the updated format for this site, LOL. Anyway, the next few weeks are my best chance for shipping out Live chicks, and I would love to send some to you to mix with your gorgeous...

    Sounds like a good plan! I usually hatch regularly during March, and overnight the peeps, so it could work out just fine. :)

    The Aloha Chicken Project

    HEChicken, if you ever want a box of 25 chicks shipped to you, just say the word. I'd ask for cost of the box and Express shipping but the chicks themselves would be free. About half would be hens, and hopefully maybe a few of those would be the "confetti" color. (Or extremely mottled.) I'd...

    Agreed, your darker hen has much better spotting, but since Mottling is a recessive gene, it's really impossible to know what the next generation might do? I can't wait to see if they naturally begin to get more spotty, or is this basically where it ends (in terms of color) on a Mottled to...

    The eggs are a creamy color, not white and not brown. Here let me see if I have a picture.

    The Aloha Chicken Project

    I'm hoping to find other people willing to breed in other states. I can ship limited numbers of chicks - maybe can mail out 5 or 6 boxes per year? Only from late February to perhaps early April, due to heat. Can't ship out of Phoenix if temps go above 85 which happens in April usually...

    The Aloha Chicken Project

    If by any chance you visit Texas - in particular the San Antonio area - there is a breeder there who is a friend of mine. I know it's a long shot but she can take dropoffs of eggs and incubate them and I can get the chickens or offspring from her later, as she does pass this way maybe once or...

    Arizona Chickens

    Yes, it's possible. However, this has been observed before when there was no NN rooster in the pen. Only the 5 hens. I've also had the NN hens separated into a breeder pen and have had more eggs in there during hot periods. This isn't a rumor or speculation, there was a study and it was...

    Arizona Chickens

    I love the Naked Necks in AZ. Yes, they are kind of "weird" looking but they DO lay more in the heat. The proof is in the chicks! Whenever I try and hatch chicks during hot times, invariably the chicks end up being more Naked Neck. For example, I only had about 5 NN hens and 1 NN rooster...
