they have not hatch yet .so guy be a little patient . we need good thought so maybe we will be gifted couple very nice cockerels to work with .that will be great .

chooks man
I am not saying she is doing a bad job. To me she traveled that far so she has a good hatch rate to maximize on what she spent and her 8 hours on the road. To already be at 60% maximum and they didn’t even hatch yet that is not good. That is the kind of hatch rate you can expect from shipped eggs.

wrong goal my friend ,
I hope they all hatch and they all low tails cockerels ,so we can use them over hen line 2 .
you don t need more hens .you have enough . you need a low tail cockerel .that will be your first breeding step . I told how Georgia X waylon will produce you the future cockerels .but we still need different line if possible than we good for ever ,no need any more blood lines .

chooks man
Yes. I understand.
Do you remember when i went to pick up the eggs that are in the incubator now all of the roosters on her farm have a ton of white underfluff.

I thought you said we would only keep the pullets from this hatch because of that.

I maybe misunderstood though.

gorgeous shape and color too .all the pullets who laid those eggs are dark eggs breeders in my books .
happy for you ,you have the dark egg genes in your lines . you have the full body pattern and a high quality copper .you have mass in your foundation pullet plus low tail .
now you have to put all these traits in the next generation .and breed them true .
I m really hoping you will couple nice low tail cockerels from the eggs in the hatcher .good luck .

chooks man
Thank you my friend.

Here is the second cockerel.
The mean one.
I put him in the legbar pen.
He was even mean while penned with Waylon in their bachelor coop.

A couple of weeks ago, i let the 2 of them out into the yard.
He tried to kill the FexEx man, me, and my husband.

I tried carrying him around for a while, pinning him down on the ground, none of that helped.

No white on him. Just rain and muck.

Not sure if you have done the BCM x CCL cross before but they produce great looking birds. Notice the CCL puff on the head with the coloring of BCM.

the eggs you posted are all good . if they come from them than it is alright .
for now I want you to catch Georgia laying . she is the first one to breed at 10 months old . we want cockerels from her to breed to long tail pullets next breeding season .

chooks man
I just caught Georgia up and put her in a pen. Shes upset so i will put Maggie with her. I know Maggie's egg. Its #4.
