    I have yet to hatch out a black cockerel... the color combination is so striking! Really nice birds, Rinda. [​IMG]

    Thank you. I am very proud of my little Isbar flock. So hopeful to have some great hatches this year and see what I get.

    i wasn't sure it was ever going to hatch, it pipped but then sat there for 24 hours with no movement at all... finally hatched overnight, but it's definitely smaller and weaker than the others...

    and my hatches of shipped eggs are getting better, but slowly -- there were 4 or 5 clears, and then quite a few that started developing but then died somewhere along the way. very happy to have four chicks, though -- added to the three i already have, this could make a nice little flock!

    This was too cute not to share................we use LGD's extensively on the ranch to protect all critters. Birds learn from a very young age that the dogs are nothing to be afraid of. In this photo, I was actually in the pen to photograph some young cockerels for a customer. Had one in focus, snapped, and this was the other part of that photo - on the left is a black Isbar cockerel, on the right an SFH cockerel, and the pretty young lady they are communing with is an Akbash named Piwi (sounds like "kiwi").

    My new blue Isbar cockerel that I picked up from lonnyandrinda. I named him Chrome. He is a talker and already likes showing off his little dance for the ladies [​IMG]
