    OK my Spanish is tapped.

    Sir you have a lovely list of birds. As for the Dark Cornish, I plan on breeding them to the old standards, I think it was a prettier bird. Today a rabbit got in the yard and was acousted by our Cornish. It hid under the truck for a spell before it made a dash for it. When it made the dash the Cornish Roo was on its tail... Too funny to watch, like a chiuaua with a Mastiff's heart
    I am amazed at your diversity not that I should be. Keep up the great work I love watching/reading

    If I can get hold of some heritage cornish in the future, the hatchlings from the eggs on order will head for freezers.

    For a long while i was struggling to get Australorps till i dug through the BYC pages.

    New Hampshires are awesome birds but honestly, some of my selections are based on coloring or feathering. I don't want birds that a novice can mix up and cross breed. once barred rocks became available, cuckoo marans were deleted and so on.

    Apart from the Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, a lone Australorp and a BCM, the rest of my wonderful mutts will all end up in the freezer once the next group are established.

    exactly two weeks from now, I will be reassembling an incubator 7500 miles away and getting ready to set some fabulous eggs.
