Love the Isabel cuckoo!Picked up some two more breeders. And shifted some birds yesterday.
This handsome fellow and the two pullets in with him are siblings. They are supposed to be split Mottled and Split Lavender. One pullet shows some Mottling. If I don’t get better Mottling, or Lavender birds, I’ll move the Mottled pullet to the Mottled pen and return the others back to the BBS pen.

Then this little handsome guy is the new Brown-red male on the Lemon Blue pen. He’s replacing the male that hasn’t produced a fertile egg in a year. He’s only four months according to the breeder but he was breeding all the girls and flirting with the Orpington pullets on the roost next door. Guess he likes them thicc.

And finally an Isabel Cuckoo Orpington that did not want to live with the bachelors and got moved to the kitchen flock pending some girlfriends for him.
