    I am hatching these boogers more and more. I started with Coturnix 5-6 years ago and it never gets old. Now how many boogers we got here? [​IMG]
    Note, they are in the "transport" box to go into their brooder. Just want to share [​IMG]

    They are Italians, I am hoping that they up in size this generation. I have been crossing them with Jumbo Browns to get umpth for 3 generations and so these guys should show something this time around [​IMG] Buttercup sent me some eggs to test and I will be crossing some of her hens with this grouping as well this time.

    Quote:Fantastic. I love the Italian disposition. My Italians from you have been the most outgoing yet tame. Hop into the hand. Most outgoing with the 5 yr old. Would love to see the outcome of this breeding plan. Way to pay it forward, as I had hoped you would. Combining the size of both of your stock AND the looks.. Wooo wee. That is a treasure I am looking forward to. Thank you for doing that Quaillady. That was the hope of the project. What can we do to improve the lines? What will we get.

    I am game and want to do this as well. I have some now too via Daddy and will do the same with the Italians from your stock. That was my hope all along.

    Away we go on the project. Thank you Buttercup, F.Daddy and Alexandra. Nice.

    And no, it will never get old, particularly when you are working together to a better end. Like Christmas!! They are always a gift at hatching and to see them develop.

    Thanks for posting this. Good info that the project is still heartily on it's way.
