    Definitely not a Bourbon Red. My guess is that it is one of the buff varieties that can be hatched from a Rusty Slate mating.

    Haven't got a clue what your other one is other than it is some kind of a slate variety. Your best chance of getting an identity on it is to probably ask Porter.

    That would give the option of it being a self blue version of a rusty slate which would look like a rusty slate without the black spots.

    I think we decided both Ethel and JJ were rusty slates. So that would be a self rusty- rusty slate?



    What are your thoughts on the first one?

    Is that one that Ethel and JJ could make? I am sorry, but I have no idea how to work that calculator.

    I have never heard of a Jersey Buff. I think it is a hen. I am looking forward too all these hens next year!

    Thanks R2Elk!

    That is a beautiful turkey! Sorry to have to bother you for the calculations, I just do not get it. I must be challenged.


    when I push calculate nothing happens.

    Whatever they are.....rusty rusty slates or buffs...they are beautiful! How cool to have such a colorful flock! And I LOVE coffee. I grind beans too. All the coffee talk made me go brew a cup! But i can't let it sit...need FRESH BREWED!! That first cup in the morning is the best.

    So Daisy is still anxious before she lays an egg. Paces & makes alien sounds. Won't settle down. Has actually hopped the fence a few times. The Bourbon Red just lays & keeps on walking! I put a dog crate in her pen...thinking she was looking for a private place to lay. They just pooped all over it. Could she be looking for a man??? I'm just trying to figure her out. When she's not getting ready to lay she just hangs out & comes up to get her head scratched. Any ideas folks??

    Sorry can't help you there. I don't know just what service they are using to run the calculator. It could be Java or it could be some other process which your browser doesn't allow to run.
