The Black Minorca also has feather mites, PM and I will explain....
Thanks, everybody! I got the cornish and the hamburgs right, that's about it.
The Minorca: must be a hen (I thought it was a rooster because the wattles and comb are larger than my other hens, but now I see it is a characteristic of the bird)?
Also - I bought the chicks this summer from a hatchery as a "mystery" rainbow layer mix. Seems like they would have known by my address not to send me a bird that doesn't do well in extreme cold like the Minorca. I live in Vermont. I'll have to lube her wattles and comb and earlobes up really well this winter; maybe even provide her with a warm condo? Not sure what to do...it can get to 20 to 30 degrees below zero some winter nights.
my Minorca had bright red wattles and comb WAY before my rooster did. Everyone thought I was crazy calling her Miss Priss...everyone thought she was a he...but I knew different. And she lays me beautiful eggs each day to prove it.
I would have never guessed that other one to be a Minorca
