I’ve been looking for a good quality Roo to cover my two SF girls for a while and have come up empty handed again and again. Does anyone know of someone who sells hatching eggs. I don’t mind adding a few more birds to get a good roo (that’s chicken math right?).
I'll be starting to breed come springtime.

Jim Bean here will be the poppa. He is going through a light molt currently.

One of the mommas, Gabby. She and Willow, my other hen, are going through hard molts right now. Never tried breeding before so looking forward to the experience come spring.

Ok need help with my 2 Salmon Favorelle chicks. They are 5 weeks this next Monday 11/4. The one Q (QBert because hopping only was the only travel method the first 1 1/2 weeks) is now picking constantly at Shawty’s rear wings and rear. (Shouty who protests Loudly at everything). Need help with Q’s picking on Shawty and sexing.

They're both pullets. What size brooder are they in? What are you feeding them? Are they the only 2 chicks you have?

They are in a 6’x3’ space with 2 Brahmas (1 is just a bit bigger then then the other is crazy big) and 2 Silkies.
Shawty still goes under the brooder plate a lot as well.
They are getting Purina medicated crumbles, which is almost gone.

Ok, so I have been going over old posts on this forum and still having a tough time learning the differences between French and German Faverolles. Is it just color or is there more to it??

Ah, don't forget to add the British Faverolles. :p

All 3 are different in type. This is a German site (exceptionally informative, not sure how well Google Translate would work), but at the bottom there are old illustrations of the body types. Left to right: French, British, German.

And yes, all 3 standards allow different colors, some they have in common.
