    Thoughts on Beilefelder as a good exhibition breed???

    I am considering getting rid of my Delaware line. They have been very frustrating. It seems that what I thought was decent breeder stock turned into standard hatchery stock. I keep getting excessive body spotting and white legs. The chicks start out beautiful white with bright yellow legs. As...

    Chick with "fluff" problems

    Last year I hatched several blue/black/splash marans. All of them looked good except 1. The chick hatched with extra short fluff on its back. There was plenty of fluff on the head, chest, wings, etc. But the back was covered by patchy bunchs of extra short "fluff." The chick thrived just fine...

    Rouen, Mallard, or Muscovy??? (with poll)

    It is difficult to determine different duck breeds at the duckling phase since many look very similar. Still, I am curious. I was at the feed store picking up some rabbits, when I spotted a bin of "assorted" ducklings. I picked up two that have that "wild-type" look, but I know of three breeds...

    Buff with a Rose Comb!?!

The feed store (not TSC) could only say that it was a bantam. So, they had no idea. A Google search kept...

    Silkie - Red Sexlink cross chick not getting any feathers... What do I do?

    I had a silkie rooster for a while that hung out with the flock but never mated with the hens (bigger rooster wouldn't let him). Instead of the typical cotton ball look he had smooth feathers. He was super sweet, but I decided to sell him because I wanted to start breeding true to standard...
