    Quote:Peter,
    Those are some of the most amazing Faverolles pullets I have ever seen. I can't wait to see what you will do with them throughout the year. Looks like you have a good group to hatch from. Simmie looks like she is producing some amazing pullets especially for being a hen with some years on her. That Lav Split pullet turned out nice too.

    Quote:Looks like you have a good bunch to start with. You should have some interesting breedings. Well, we have a major north eastern storm coming in. They said it would start this afternoon but here it is 8:56 in the morning and its starting to snow now, and I have to go into work tonight for 7:30. Hope I can make it. They're predicting about a foot of snow.
    Here is something I've seen in my large hens. In breeding with dark males and light males; in the past I have used light males in a breeding pen where the males were so light they didn't have any red mohogany on top of their saddle feathers. Some of the pullets would be a two tone salmon. What I mean by that is the salmon from the top of her head to where the saddle would begin is a little darker and from the saddle to the tip of the tail is a little lighter. The hens should be an even salmon color from the top of the head to the tip of the tail. I haven't seen this problem in my salmon bantams. In the past I've used lighter salmon bantam males where they still carried some red above their saddles. The pullets would come out fine, some a little darker and some a little lighter but the salmon color was even. Has anyone else noticed this in their past breedings.
    I'm just thinking out loud here and would appreciate any feedback from other breeders.

    I have had that happen too Dick on the color. Hang in there with the snow

    My birds will be very unhappy with what they find here in the morning. The kids on the other hand can't wait to see what's here come dawn. Hi test eggnog sounds good to me though!

    Quote:Dubbing is when you cut the comb off to form a kinda flat rose comb looking area. Its is used for more game breeds.
