OOH, can you tell me which shows???! When/where? I am coming up empty handed looking for shows right now! And our 4-H clubs (that I know of) aren't doing any right now. I think turkey are awesome! That is so fun to be out there with them. I love their noises. I hope you can find that egg quick that is smelling. Maybe by tonight or tomorrow morning you'll discover which one it is. (without it exlpoding!) I don't know what Bobwhite look like-- but doesn't Daren have those too? Are they pretty small?? I think quail would be fun! But I'm going to stick to my silkie project and not do anything else. I'm learning so much right now-- too much to handle! For example, I'm unforunately learning first hand about the brachydactyly gene which is common in feather legs. It's also what causes a shortened outside toe or a missing toe nail. (my new chick has this!) Lucky for me, it's not a DQ, but it's not a trait I want in offspring. And I just learned that you have to have both parents that have a copy of that gene to pass it on. Guess what I have??? Sigh. Looks like i need to find another nice rooster for my pullet and another hen for my rooster! But I'm going to be far more careful and picky about what their toes and wings look like this time around. I really lucked out with the ones I have, but now I have a better idea of what I'm doing. But even if I stick with my paring, it's only a 50% chance they will get it. Breeding is HARD!!!! Which birds were you thinking of showing? Just wondering which breeds you are working on? Did you get any of those black rosecombs from your sister?
