Oohhh, um, beard?
Your little boy is becoming a man...
I went and looked at my BBB, Your black one looks nothing like my BBBs! So here you have it, I was wrong, for the first time in my life.......
Like I said, black slates come in very handy when you wish to produce all blue. Black paired with lavender gives 100% blue. Here's a rundown on slate genetics:
Black with no slate gene=black
Black with 1 slate gene=blue
Black with 2 slate genes=lavender
Black + Black =100% black
Black + Blue = 50% black & 50% blue
Black + Lavender =100% blue
Blue + Lavender = 50% blue & 50% lavender
Blue + Blue = 25% black, 50% blue & 25% lavender
The same works with bronze to make red slates & lilacs
Bronze with no slate gene = bronze
Bronze with 1 slate gene = red slate
Bronze with 2 slate genes = Lilac
Another sign of a tom. His beard is coming in.
So we should alert the historical society? Does your wife know? LOL! my little big boy and his beard.
I googled images, beard isn't so bad. I didn't know what to expect. I'm OK now.
I will be breeding my Black in the spring. I think it is a girl though.
I have another black but it is just a young'un, it is JJ and Ethel's baby. Which are my rust/red slates (whatever they are) It is still living with Ethel, I am a little worried about it though as it is so small compared to the others.
I am not sure who my older Black ones parents are, but I think she is from the blues.
So if my Tom gets too rambunctious with no girls around, I just need to find a breeder, in my area, that needs a black. Or I get a girl. Thanks for that info!
Are you nuts?
I would never tell my DW something like that? It is apparent you have never read my article on marital bliss...
I am cracking up! This is too funny for me at the moment!
I had all sorts of "highly informative quips"... but there is no point now! It has all been said.
After I saw the poult pic, I knew that Grady was not a BBB. I wanted to say he was becoming a man and getting his beard.
I wanted to tell Memphis that her new turkey is a hen, spurs and snoods develop weeeellll before a year. And she is all dainty looking.
And really, Ralph, don't tell your DW you were wrong. We like to sink our claws in... or spurs, whatever term you prefer.
And I know that you know if you EVER get rid of Penguin, you will be getting a divorce. Or will have the coldest winter on record in MN.
Well...."she" layed an egg today! I think her little beard it cute! I'm naming her Caitlin!
