As soon as you build a molecular transporter, they will be there!!!
They're not circumcised
Ok, here's the plan: as much as I absolutely despise the idea of building another pen... I have to build another pen. I think I have 2 good roosters, and the right mix of hens to get a proportionate number of colors, so here's what it will be:
Pen 1: Splash rooster
2 blue hens
2 black hens
This wayI can get splash without mating splashXsplash, and should get some good blues off the black hens
Pen 2: Black rooster
2 black hens
1 splash hen
1 blue hen
Should get some nice blacks out of this pen, and can compare the blues that each rooster throws.
Finally finished that van.....off to the next chores. Do I need to worry about worming ducks?
I think that sounds like a good plan... and, I told you so...
When you have that good of stock, unfortunately you gotta do what you gotta do... if you could keep them together, it'd be easier, but you have no control or idea of what colors you'd end up getting...
Oh, and btw... I know my fave saying is build the barn before you paint it, but when the barn is mostly built by another you can start looking at paint chips...
I do, but it's personal choice... we're overly wet here, so I go with better safe than sorry...
SC, what shades are your blue hens? I know you have a dark and a light, but how many of each?
1 very dark, two medium, one light
Correction. One of each, three total. Four blacks and a splash
My suggestion, put the light one in with the black boy and the 2 darker in with the splash... try that and see how the blues turn out from each pen...
Oops, messed up, lol...
Fashionably late! for Saturday!
I know! How's it going? Are you doing the NYD Hal? I'm debating...
That sounds good. I'm planning the exact same thing. Well not exact. But I have 2 small coops/runs going up in spring, besides my main one. They'll be breeding pens for specific boys/girls. The problem is, mine are still growing out, so I don't know what I have yet. But I just purchased some chicks from a good breeder today too. Shipping out this week. I found a place that does the dna test (silkies take soooo long). And the ones I'm really counting on will get tested. $12 a test. Then at least I can get as far as you are and know who will go where. Are you going to be selling hatching eggs/chicks/adults??
