Congrats! I'm so glad you got a good hatch, can't wait to see photos
There was one black chick, but it was a late quitter. Now, hoping for some pullets from these four...(the wait begins).
Anyone selling chicks?
Thanks for the photo! So cute!
Time for gender guesses.
The one to the far left might be male, my guess is the other three are female.
A month or so and you'll know for sure.
I'm now taking reservations for 2014 chicks, Isbars included. Info at http://www.naturalark.com/poultry.html
You just pull that out of a hat or is there a secret Isbar day-old sexing formula?
It's very unreliable, because Isbars were not fully "completed" as an auto sexing breed, but they sometimes can still exhibit those signs, supposedly. Far left chick has a pale patch of down on its head. (But some females can too, so it's a guess)
My big dream would be to work with the breed on a large scale and finish the true auto sexing component. But that is a big dream
Enjoy your babies!
Okay, so I've always been an oddball. I can't possibly be happy with "normal" chickens like Rhode Island Reds or Barred Rocks. No, I have to fall in love with the Blue Black Splash crowd. I just put down a deposit on 4 Isbars for spring, hoping I get 3 pullets and one Roo. Not counting my chickens before they are shipped, though.
I know...and understand. Have BCM & BBS Marans breeders, Rhodebar and Isbar chicks. What's the plan if they are all cockerels?
