  2. Quote:Either or....blue columbians would be cool...I might end up keeping my buff columbian standard cochins...if christina doesn't want them any more...
     
  3. Quote:not to get off subject i might get a pair this weekend but anyway what about porcelain silkies

    I personally don't like the looks of them...I'd love a chocolate pair or some cuckoos, though. They look like dryer lint to me! LOL
     
  4. Quote:I'm considering andalusians & white faced black spanish to work on white faced blues...I'm nervous about their comb size, though...that's what's kept me away from the Minorcas...I like the buffs. I also considered the chantelcers or whatever they are, LOL
     
  5. Quote:Again, nervous about large combs or anything that needs more care than "normal." I already have to bubble wrap a few of my houdan bantams in the colder nights! [​IMG] The rumpies I thought of didn't because of their ferility issues...not had the best of luck with Sandhill so I'm going to try elsewhere. [​IMG]
     
  6. Quote:Considered those, too...especially the rose combed ones...

    What about Standard Blue Salmon Favorelles. Delawares are really great too.
    Don't give up on the BLR Wyandottes. I managed to get 3 to hatch out and thrive. They are lovely. And the Light Sussex are so pretty. I have got to get out and take some pics for you.
    I tried to incorporate them into the big coop today and it was a no go. Those big birds were bullying them all over the place.
    Oh just thought of this...I have one buff Sussex. It is really pretty. Why not work on those too?
    Ok now I gotta go get pictures!!!
     
  9. Quote:Well, I had white standard faverolles for a while...but they had poor laying habits and low survivability here. [​IMG] I felt bad with such "rare" birds that I was killing! LOL So I sold them to a lady on the coast who was going to work on them. I also tried to hatch out some blue salmon banty favs and got ONE (cockerel, of course!) I don't care for the looks of the buff sussex, LOL I'm picky! And I want to see how these Lights do this winter...I sent my payment into Paul--so I've got a pair coming in a few weeks!
