    soooo first two squab looking good the hen and cock have a showroller and a Trumpeter chick in the nest
    I put the Trumpeter chick in their when the egg was pipping because my trumps squish the babies with their muffs (i have alot of shows coming up so their muffs are cut back )

    My showroller squab looks promising

    here is a pic of the Hen I love her color and body she is a 2010 bird can''t wait to see how she does at the show
    The cock is a lovely full bodied Mealy cock so my squab should be full of color

    She is a nice roller. I like the red mottles. I have several in my flying rollers. I like thos trumpters also. I had some of those years ago and really like them. I like the fancy colored ones best. All I ever had was like the rest of yours,blacks and blues

    I would love to get some red and yellow and almond trumps! I just don't like black,blue colored/marked birds,unusuall for a roller person I know but thats me! I got one pair of red mottleds a few years back and boy have they produced. Stupid me didn't keep any of their offspring,because they are always the first picked out by buyers!.So now I am keeping them and have four pairs of them mating now!
