    it took me a while working with my brahma and I will always be working with them, and it isnt near as hard as what your workin with. good luck with that. I love the am breed, my lavs looked amazing and then about 14 months the coloring just went blah. not sure why that happens, or if I did something wrong. I was so po'd I sold them off cause I spent fortune on them, and couldnt sell eggs from them when I saw them starting to discolor. never got another am.

    I'm guessing that's why Ravyn prefers the darker blues. The lighter ones do look a bit washed out, so when I get some more girls, I will be keeping the darkest blues for myself. I also wonder if the black cockerel will breed a darker blue. I'm going to try as hard as I can to keep them in the same pen, but that's never worked for me before

    hmmm interesting, will have to ask her now that you said that. how large is the run you have for them?

    I love blacks, since I have had white faced black spanish I have grown fond of a black chicken. the coloring is fantastic of a black bird, you cant get that in any other.

    Very nice pics SC, thanks for posting them. I still can't pick a favorite. That cockerel is awesome looking. I got some new pics of Ted and Louie yesterday, will post shortly.

    First 3 are Louie, last one is Ted. Louie has a small V in the middle of his comb. Ted's is more uniform, but not as large.
    They are a little dirty, but I'm liking the way they are looking.
    I didn't get a good pic of the black split pullet. Maybe today.
