Where do you live?
The strain I am incubating is the following:
They give information about the body weight.
I rather doubt your males need the calcium. And in the US, White Leghorns are an actual breed, not a hybrid.
White leghorns are everywhere what they are in US.
Hahaha. Hy-line, Hisex, Babcock are all american companies, which sell hybridized white leghorns.
Study the 4 steps I mention here and you will understan what exactly WL are the last 200 years: https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/vote-for-the-best-hybrid-layer.1279022/page-4
All of my stock originated from reputable breeders and in some cases poultry judges. I don't mix my lines and if I need new blood I get the birds from the breeder and usually make arrangements to pick the birds up at a show. One male SCWL I got from a breeder when he was very young, got reserve champion at the last show.
I just love everything about white Leghorn’s. They are my absolute favorite. Beautiful @cmom !
This is interesting-
Personally, I would split Group B into B1 and B2 though this may not be possible for you.
I would give B1 no Calcium, but treats 4-5 times a week.
Then I would give B2 Calcium but treats 0-2 times a week.
I love mine too. When the birds are molting the Leghorns keep on laying.
I know!! Right?
Molt...Winter....and Huge eggs from their little bodies.
I and very interested in this experiment. Please give us progress reports. In the past I did do experimental breeding. It was fun. I worked mostly with Red Sex-Links and some Black Sex-Links Both Single comb and Rose Comb and succeeding generations.
