Hello there! I'm Potoooooooo. Quite the name huh? I'm a to-be chicken mama and love to make new friends. I am a people's person, so please do talk to me, I do not bite! (Hehe, sometimes). I am also a graphics artist and love manipulating images, so if you want to request something poultry-related, please do feel free. And oh right, I live somewhere in Canada. Before I get started with poultry, I have a few questions for all of you chicken laureates. My goal with chickens is to produce either an Orpington with the colours on my profile picture (Gypsy blue skin and face, with golden buff lacing), or birth a living homozygous Araucana with the EtEt allele combination (One deemed a lethal gene). Any tips are appreciated, as I'm not sure how to start. Here are my questions: What life threat does the allele combination EtEt give to an Araucana? Undeveloped lungs? Heart? Brain? Why is it lethal? How would I introduce Gypsy to Orpingtons? Will my breeding goals be hard to achieve, maybe even impossible? Is there a way to grow chicks outside of the egg, when they are still an embryo? (I've heard secret government operations of this with humans...) What diet would be the best for my goals? ~~~~ Thanks and I hope to meet you all soon!
