Thanks for the info and also for dropping by to say Hi.
A quiet day in the Philippines
Bernie and Dado started working on the coop. Ben and a laborer are still working on the fence. They have completed about 80 feet of the 440. A second load of 400 cinder blocks, 30 bags of cement 8cm each of sand and gravel arrive tomorrow.
The next round of home laid eggs should hatch tomorrow also.
I will have Bernie candle the peafowl and turkey tonight.
Congrats OZ!!! My first foray into crossing my own meat birds has begun tonight. I set 25 eggs...the cross is
Dark Cornish Roo x barred rock hens
Dark Cornish Roo x bresse hens
they sound like great crosses. good luck
Bernie will candle as soon as it gets dark (pretty soon)
in the mean time we have 6 new chicks from the imported mutts
i will have bernie set all wed-fri eggs each week till we have a boat load
We culled another non producing coconut tree
total of 321.6bf @ 5p per bf equals 1,608p or just about $38
That is an interesting cross. I hope for your sake they grow as fast as the hens breeds do and not the dark cornish.
For some reason I've never thought of crossing the bresse with a dark cornish. I'm very interested in the results from that. *plotting how to get hubby to accept MORE chickens for meat raising purposes*
sounds like you will have Bernie building more coops soon
It's an experiment we plan to reverse the process between Roos/hens to see how type size and meat develop between each. We want a self re producing food tasting meat bird that we can butcher around 12 weeks so they don't have the issues of the Cornish rocks so well see.
OZ if we're successful we'll send eggs your way
