    Yeah, lived on a cattle farm when I was married, & the grandson is luckily getting that exposure thru my son & ex-husband, but I give him other aspects of it. My son says he's so happy I have the animals...he escapes the caring & paying for them lol but his son still gets to be around & experience it. He loves helping gather eggs. Literally one of his first words was vocalizing a rooster crowing. Even now, he doesn't identify animals by name, but rather by the sound they make. I've been working on teaching names for a while, but he's a lil stuck in his way lol.

    Thanks for the welcomes...I've been on BYC for a few months but just decided to see what this thread was about.

    Deb, I don't go to FB any longer and all the data mining and what its turned into makes me sad. I have learned to keep filters up, and blockers on, and I have ONE email addy I won't give out without first snai-lmailing a letter to myself and replying about where it is really necessary to share it in that instance. That gives me a quick check spot for security. But I had wondered about the "little green arrow" here...and clicked one once without much interesting happening...and now I know its very handy function, and you saved me a bunch of time and frustration! (so thanks again [​IMG] )

    [​IMG]Hi jldward, I am a new egg here too. Warning: this thread is addictive. Seems like a super nice place with great people. I hear you have to beware of wolves though.

    I wonder.....

    how am I going to replace my rooster with a hetero rooster???

    can't decide...

    I could raise up one of his sons... but then I will have to wait for the chick to be grown up, test mate, etc. before I KNOW, and then the rooster will have a 50% of being a hetero..

    or... I could order another set of eggs, related (same breeder as before, I don't know anyone who has this breed), but at least it wouldn't be the son over his mothers..... but the chicks I raised would maybe be hetero or homo..... who knows, and I would be out more money..... and I would still have to wait for the chick to grow up and test mate to see what I ended up with

    you are right 50%. That's what I get for trying to think genetics and watch TV.
