    I think I need to find a Bourbon Red, a NG and a Royal palm to add to my flock.

    Yeah someone is probably gonna pick her up tomorrow, bourbon reds sell really quick around here. She is starting to be belly button-ish with my favorite ducks and chickens [​IMG]

    Ralph...we are on the same page. Ran the calculator using a few different breeds with JJ, Ethel, Ginger & EJ (Ethel Jr.) Some extremely interesting combinations to be had!! You could add a whole other colorway to the flock!


    NOTE: He still has his special running. Poults for $5.00 each, his choice. A surprise in every box! Sure is tempting! 15 bird minimum! What a good deal. Someone. ..please order this so I can live vicariously! !!! PLEEEEZE!

    Question : How long is a tom fertile?

    Probably could have hooked you up if you took a slight detour on your way thru Mo.

    I'm going to have Adam babies (or I guess in this case, eggs) before long :)

    Got some poults out of 5 yo bourbon tom. But his spurs were to rough on the hens so he got retired.

    I read best fertility was up to about 3 yo then it started to drop off.

    Feedman. ...I had heard about 3-4 years before significant decline. Was curious. Are hens like chicken hens with diminished egg laying at a certain age? Where are you in Missouri? My family is in St. Louis & I own a house in Ste. Genevieve. Heck....I may be the one taking a detour this spring!

    If only Ralphie would have let me know he was coming through Memphis. I would have gladly taken Ginger off his hands.
