Nice job. Funny story
That is a funny story. These creatures are a never ending source of entertainment. I love the way your coops are tied together with the same color. Forgetful? When I leave my kitchen, and head to the bedroom, by the time I get there, I forget why I was going there. Or, I'll leave the bedroom with something in my hand. By the time I get to the kitchen, I've lost it. And we live in a small house!!! I swear my hall way has a giant black hole that sucks both thoughts and things into an eternal void.
That must be what grabs socks on the way to the laundry room too!
You asked about my LavOrps on the egg thread, and I didn't want to overload that thread, so I thought I'd add some here:
I hatched these the last week of April.... 9 full lavender and 1 black/lav split. Ended up with 3 male, 7 female. The black/lav split is a female.
Here are a few pics. Enjoy! I'm anxiously awaiting eggs from them!
weebeepers they are so cute. Soft.
You're killing me! So beautiful! I'm just smitten with them. Thank you for the pictures, I'm drooling!
Thanks everyone. I'm proud of them and they get prettier every day!
WV: awesome stats on gender! And I'm jumping through hoops to tweak my hatches to yield good percentages!
You can't really control gender, can you? Just hatch more!
I always heard no more than one roo to less than 10 hens, but with LOs, I was reading that they aren't nearly as aggressive with the hens and each other, and multiple roos are not as much problem. I would really like to keep all 3 of mine, maybe I'm just grasping...
