    LOL!!!
    FOUR!!!!!! I only breed 5 toed silkies!!!

    Thanks Tori! Had a rough day - my diabetic daughter had to be picked up from college today because the morons in the health center (she went in for a female issue) tried to force her to go to the hospital for a blood sugar that could easily be managed without hospitalization! Poor kid has had juvenile diabetes for a decade & knows when she's in danger --- she wasn't! So mama lion had to drive 3 hours each way to save her from the creepy nurses. Within an hour, her sugar was dropping & it was normal by the time I got there. [​IMG]

    Sorry --- I had to spew!

    [​IMG] from me too...

    Jen --- The six eggs are officially in lockdown! [​IMG] I set my White & Colored Dorking eggs from Ed Hart yesterday.

    Dave --- I didn't count which SG eggs were from who, but I still have 30 out of 40 developing strong!

    Tori --- PM me! I have 6 eggs for you so far. [​IMG] I'll collect whatever they lay this weekend & mail them out on Monday.

    Quote:Very nice. Ed's Colored's are quite lovely. I have two of his colored hens here. There have excellent feather quality.

    Coloreds are a challenge to breed because of color variation. However, if there were five or more breeders willing to concentrate on them, we could work as a club to enter the RC Colored into the Standard.

    We only need five breeders to work on them to enter them in the Standard? Nice! [​IMG]
    I need to know more about the process of adding varieties to the SOP.

    For some reason I was under the impression that colored bred true, but that's ok. Will they breed true once you reach the color in the SOP? I love a challenge!
    I'm hatching everything the girls lay & have had a few surprises --- I'm guessing from our "light grey" hen. I have to take some pics.
