Any updates on the Hedemoras? I am back in Northern MI, coming back went through -22F weather from MT through western MN and one SC Icelandic had severe frostbite on his SC, the RCs all did well, I was able to acquire 3 Icelandics with feathered legs, and 2 with smaller RCs, one seems to be sexually retarded, cant decide if it wants to be a rooster or pullet so its going to a pet home, the largest is a tightfeathered white rooster, but has a SC so he gets rehomed also, the middle one is a blackbreasted red winged RC with what seems to be 'enhanced' feathering on all of the body and good leg feathering, he will be used at least one time on all of my small flock of hens, all but one are RCs, and some very small ones. I have a larger RC blackbreasted red winged rooster with very dominant trait, he will get a limited breeding with several of the hens for some diversity to this years chicks, I am hoping for much better feathering and combs from the small dark featherlegged rooster. By fall I will have some good comparisons between the two sires. Its tempting to use just the one enhanced feathering one for this year. But will keep both roosters for half the season at least, the bigger older rooster does have excellent growth for his age, not sure if that is not a factor of his dominance, but if so it all works well for the breed. I am considering getting a few of the Hedemora chicks this spring to compare with the Icelandics and the new breeding added this fall in the featherlegged one(s).
