    Yep, that's normal. Doesn't mean all the colors are the correct ones, but when you hatch them you tend to get birds with too much black, too much buff, and the correct color. It's a matter of culling out the ones with the undesirable color( could always use a lighter bird on a darker bird and hope their offspring get the correct color ).

    I've been having a lot of problems uploading photos lately as well. Don't know if it is me or BYC.

    Anyway, thanks for the pics. I'm hoping to be able to see a lot of Brahmas in Ohio, there really aren't any breeders anywhere around here so I don't have any mentors. I'm hoping that I can learn a lot and more than a lot in Ohio. I doubt I'll get a chance to go there again, so this is my one shot (and works out nicely with the Brahma National). Your pics really helped me to identify some face features that I've been trying to figure out lately and just couldn't tell from the SOP what I was looking for. I've found that there's not much of a selection of Brahma show pictures on the web.

    Nice birds BTW and sorry about the fly strike. I hope he recovers. I lost a dog to that once, by the time I found them it was too late.

    I have never heard of a fly strike before, what is it?
     
  9. Maggot infestation is also called "fly strike."
