    Quote: Yeah they did. I gave them to a friend and she lost them when her barn blew down in a bad storm here in IN. I still think Blue Javas are possible but I am not sure how to get the right percentages of Black and White to make it possible. I did have some success with what I think a...

    SILVER JAVA CHICKENS October 16, 2007 These birds came out of a Black Java Hen's brown egg: I was surprised when these two developed but when the hen had a pea comb I knew my Black Java Rooster bred my Blue Ameraucana hen (who's father was a Silver Ameraucana ) and their daughter to a...

    Quote: I think red feathers on a black bird is strikingly beautiful, but not the APA Standard on a Black Java. I usually found the red neck feathers would show up in the mature roosters not the cockerels (mostly) and if a Black Java rooster had the red feathering he would throw the red...

    Saladin I have wondered about the Auburn Javas myself. I don't mean to hurt anyone’s feelings... But my history with them was when I received my 2 dozen Black and White Java chicks from Garfield Farms Museum and hatched by the Chicago Museum of Science two years after I ordered them. I had...

    What is a Hybrid really?

    So if you introduce another breed into a bloodline the bloodline is for ever more hybrid? Why I am asking is Bantam Black Javas. I am trying to find some and or work to create some but if I introduce another breed for downsizing in the bloodline is it always a hybrid? Does it matter after...

    What is a Hybrid really?

    Okay... still a little confused. The first out cross F1 is a Hybrid (mutt) ... you pick up the trait you are looking for (color, size, etc.) but then breeding back to the true breed after that ... what generation are you back to the true breed or are you ever? Does it matter if you get the...

    What is a Hybrid really?

    A question I have been wondering about: Hybrids... if you introduce one breed into another breed is the line forever more a hybrid breed? The reason I am pondering this question is Bantam Black and Mottled Javas. Where are they? How would you go about re-establishing them? If you use another...

    I picked up "The Poultry Magazine" VOL2 - ISS11 - JAN/FEB 2011 and found an article on JAVA FOWL. In the article it says that "The Java bantam is on the inactive list for the American Bantam Association." What does this mean exactly? I think I know but I am not really sure. The article had a...

    Ah no, Chickielady, the Old Man past away last summer. It broke my heart to see him go. The rooster I am currently using is his son who is just as gentle as his dad. I will try to post a photo of a great grandson who is coming on strong. He is big, handsome, protective watching over the other...
