What do the hens look like?
The Sheriff has pics of her on the Icelandic thread... but you'd have to search... sometime in the last month.
There are some pics here:
So they are supposed to be autosexing right? What do the day old chicks look like?
Quote:they look like a melanized Birchen or under melanized E/E to me.. roos look like birchen and hens look like extended black.
looking at the breed again.. I still think they are Extended blacks lacking melanizers..
this pic of a pair was taken from here: http://www.rarebreedauctions.com/103493,auction_id,auction_details
The pattern reminds me of the copper marans with the roosters being patterned and hens mostly solid
Quote:black copper maran are and look Gold Birchen to me.
But as far as the patterning goes. When the coppers first started showing up for sale alot of the hens were solid black (like a couple of the hens in the picture you just posted). I'm not saying that is what they are, it just reminds me of a poor birchen looking rooster
I just listed 6 blue Isbar eggs on a Buy-It-Now classified.
