    Can I use a Blue Andalusian rooster to create blue sex links?

    What color eggs would the Andalusian offspring lay since he carries the gene for white eggs? What about the Blue Cochin? Would that be a better rooster for the blue sex-link? Or is it the same deal with 50/50 blue/black? Anyone have any help on the blue roo over light columbian hens?

    Can I use a Blue Andalusian rooster to create blue sex links?

    I am currently breeding several varieties of Red and Black sex-links and would like to start a blue sex-link pen. What are the best combinations? I can get a blue andalusian rooster locally, I have also found a couple of blue cochin roosters. Can any of these be bred with a barred hen to...

    Does anyone in the US have Cream Legbars?

    Actually, I crossed an EE that was RIR colored with some silver pencilled EE hens--all of the silver chicks turned out to be be boys. They are beautiful, but finding more of the same colors in hens and the roo would probably be difficult. I just kind of lucked into the ones I had. Anybody out...

    Does anyone in the US have Cream Legbars?

    I am very interested in the Cream Legbars for several reasons. I am a backyard breeder and would love to have an autosexing blue/green egg layer. The Ameraucana/EE's are so hard to tell gender at a young age. Even though I love selling the colored egg layers, it's a bit frustrating when the...

    Poor Cuckoo Marans hatches

    I question about dry incubation. What state are you in? Here in Arid-zona, there is no way to get the room humidity that high. Our humidity right now is around 20% and can go lower than that.

    Poor Cuckoo Marans hatches

    Thanks everyone for good info. This whole experience has made me think about fine tuning humidity--lower at first. My humidity is in the upper 50's-low 60's from day one. I just opened more vents to allow more circulation and bring the humidity down a little. Even though I've had pretty good...

    Poor Cuckoo Marans hatches

    Yes, my incubator has a fan in it. So, are you saying Marans need MORE air circulation than other breeds? I have helped a couple hatch, 2 I waited too long and they died immediately--were almost gone when I finally decided to help them out. I will try starting them out at lower humidity...

    Poor Cuckoo Marans hatches

    The crazy thing is 100% of everything else in the incubator at the same time hatches! All my RIR's, Ameraucanas, and even the Serama!! And 1 out of 9 on the Cuckoo Marans. My next batch I'm going to try hatching the Marans in an egg carton. I'll post how it turns out.

    Poor Cuckoo Marans hatches

    I'm scratching my head over this one. I have been hatching for several months now and had no problems (some 100% hatches). Until I started hatching my Cuckoo Marans' eggs. This past hatch I set 15 RIR, 9 Ameraucanas, 9 Cuckoo Marans, and 1 Serama mix. Temp was 100 with no variations, humidity...
