    You know, I really wonder about using a material like that new mattress stuff they call " onpurple" have you seen the commercials with the eggs where they drop a pain of glass on them? The cost of the stuff would probably be prohibitive. . . but!

    Has anyone gotten any closer in more recent year/months to finding leads on where to get true pyncheons? I see Dovemaiden hasn't been active for a good while. I just acquired 5 but they appear to be from some questionable genes. I would travel for good eggs or chicks.

    My new flock.... 1 adult breeding pair, 6 youth.

    Would like to research true historical breed characteristics and possibly trade eggs etc..

    Note the cock was not dubbed, he suffered frostbite some time ago.

    Beautiful! I think my 5 may turn out to be all females. At what age are you able to tell for sure? Mine are still fairly young and I've noticed for sure they're slower to mature.
