A question for anyone out there breeding rare or threatened breeds off of the Livestock Conservancy list...
What constitutes a good breeding program?
I understand that depending on the breed there will be limited genetics to work with. That can lead to some quirks and deformities; there may be...
at 9:00 pm I get a call from my boyfriend saying his cat found a baby bird and they can’t find the nest so he asked me to take care of it. (In the past I raised wild birds.) I can’t find the type of bird this is, I live in Oregon. It’s 10:43 please help.
Im supposed to recieve this chicken once he/she is older. I am hoping it is a hen because I am looking for another egg layer for my backyard flock. Any thoughts on breed or gender? (Black chick in the front on the right)
So I believe this type of quail was originally bred from Coturnix, but I'm not sure. I've seen pictures of it, and it's a sort of snowy-black and white color (like a fuzzy screen). Any ideas on what type it might be?
