You are very welcome! He has a great new home. We are thrilled that he can help someone else like he has helped us. His son, Syrus, is breeding for us now and will enter his first shows in March and April 2017.
I have no doubt Syrus will do exceptional! But please keep us posted on his progress, would love to hear about it... and we will definitely keep you posted about Apollo and his offspring here... super excited and can't wait to see his babies!
He absolutely is, inside as well as out... all that credit is Lisa's... but we are proud to have him and look forward to our future line...
1 has never shown any symptom of illness and she laid 2 eggs in 3 last days. I will see if she continuous. the other one keeps going to the nest but does not lay. that looks like some health issue.I will see what happens with the new ones as they come from the same place.
I did have IB and fowl pox last year. there is a possibility that they remained damaged from that although they didn't have a lot of symptoms so I don't know if they had been sick at all. the one that goes to the nest and don't lay had a problem when she laid her first egg. she looked like dying. she also had swollen face a few months ago.
IB could very well mess with their reprductive capabilities... even if they didn't show symptoms, they'll be carrying it... not sure what it might do to carriers that don't show symptoms...
good question and possible answer: my birds with symptoms healed and lay. the birds without symptoms are poor layers. possible reason: I didn't treat the birds without symptoms. a beginner's mistake.
Don't beat yourself up... learn and continue on...
Might want to start your new ones on a preventative regimen before introducing them into your flock though... just in case...
thanks, I sure will.
What is IB?
My araucanas are also poor layers. When they are laying I will get 5 or 6 eggs a week, and then they will just stop and take a break for months on end. I've probably gotten a dozen or so eggs from each of them this year, and now no one is laying.
My new stock from a different line all ended up being cockerels, so I guess I'm out of luck getting some more layers. There were two chicks that died - they were probably pullets.
My Araucana lay amazingly! They go right through spring and summer and then take a break and start again in February
