    Here is a story for you all.... not chicken related, but chatty anyways....

    I breed English Springer Spaniels on occasion for those of you that don't now, my true loves....

    anyways.....
    I wanted to get a female poodle... yea I said poodle, standard, so we could have a few springerdoodle pups, they are hypoallergenic and if you breed a chocolate to a springer they are gorgeous to boot!

    anyways, I am having issues TALKING the family into an poodle, most hate poodles I find..... and I DID hate them until I started looking at springerdoodles.....

    so I used a few images to get the kids on MY SIDE.....

    Lucas was first.... I said how about a LION.....

    "we are getting the pink one and I am getting my hair dyed, Aunt Angie says she can do it just like the first picture.....PINK on the bottom, I told her you already knew about it, Luv U"

    This is funny, and sounds a lot like my family. I love doodle breeds. I have a boxer and saw boxer-doodles. Adorable but the different hair types produced mixed results on the pups. Golden doodles and speepdogdoodles are my favorites.

    You could always try the route of what they Standard Poodle was originally bred for. It was originally bred to be a hunting dog. [​IMG]

    This was my first attempt at hatching. I got O Shamo chicks in the bator. [​IMG] I had 10 eggs left. Three have hatched, one pipped and 6 keeping fingers crossed over.[​IMG]
