    So... I entered a bunch of birds into the Ohio national and it didn't even hit me that I still need to get 2 birds tested that are with me in Ohio and I don't know any testers! Any help would be much appreciated. Would prefer not to have to take them with me to Virginia to get them tested :).

    the state Vet's office they would be in charge of the testing and testers

    In Virginia Dr Richard L. Wilkes (804)692-0601 [email protected]

    In Ohio it would be Dr Tony Forshey (614)728-6220 [email protected]

    Hope that Helps

    Thanks a bunch! I emailed the guy in Ohio. I already have a tester in Virginia who I can have other birds tested :).

    Thank you very much. I love the rooster in your profile picture :). I'm guessing a Japanese batam golden duck wing?

    Gold Neck Booted Bantam, It was a borrowed bird to get our incubating skills honed. My wife is working on some of the same in d'anver which apparently are very rare in the US.

    I do love those Silver Laced though We also have partridge wyandottes from the Foley's

    Beautiful birds, but they keep sitting on ghost eggs. they go broody on pine shavings [​IMG]

    Neat :). I met someone who was trying to breed the d'anvers a while back.
    I got a pair of partridge from him as well along with a few from Paul. My silvers always go broody :/. It's always when I decide to hatch too! Hopefully I'll get more this year and hopefully the partridge don't mimic them!
    How old are your partridge wyandottes at the moment?

    4 are a couple months old, 3 about 6 months old, 3 about a year and a few months. they are nice birds, but this broody thing is driving me nuts.
