    WOOHOOO!!!!

    I figured it out....with this 7 hole pen I'm getting here in a few days, and the 6 hole I already have, once each and everyone is full of 5 birds per that'll be 65 birds! With 52 hen potential of eggs a day once all mature and in full swing! YESSS! [​IMG]

    So deffinate pen plans arreeeee

    1 bobwhite pen
    1 A & M pen
    1 tux pen
    1 jumbo brown pen
    1 dark tibetan pen
    1 golden pen
    1 red pen
    1 red tuxedo pen
    1 rosetta pen (true rosettas)
    1 bob-bird pen (yes you read that right)
    1 golden range
    1
    1

    I have plans for the other two but haven't 100% decided yet what I want in those. This isn't also considering my rabbit hutch which right now has a few goldens in them. Whatever is of more interest to me and to my customers I'll breed in there.

    *mad scientist look*


    OOH ANNNDDDDD I have two strains of golden btw. [​IMG] I thought my roo looked different from my other roo and I talked to a breeder about it and yep... two different strains. WOOHOO! LOL I dont know if it has a name for it but I'll have to find out the name if there is a different one.

    Quote:bobwhite crossed over coturnix. Some dont believe it's possible but i've talked to enough breeders (and field trial people) that really do like them so I believe it's true now and am going to attempt the cross myself [​IMG] Only 1 in 4 eggs is said to be succesfully fertile though as it's not a natural thing ofcourse.
