    I renamed one of my roos tonight. He is now called dinner. He was my #2 roo, but instead of his normal sweet self he attacked me when I picked him up. Not sure why, or what was going on, but he will be in he freezer in the morning. He almost made it there tonight, but I contained myself. It's my stupid fault for talking about how sweeet all my roos were today. [​IMG] Anyone else have a sweety turn all of a sudden? I do think something was going on as EVERYONE was on edge....but [​IMG]

    Would anyone consider selling chicks? I don't have any way to hatch eggs.

    Quote:I think a few of them are mottled. I'll let you know when they grow up a bit more.

    Anything that has yellow on areas other than the belly should be mottled. ie chick on right in 1st pic and then on left in 2nd pic. Other chick is black.

    These colors are so much fun. I'm so excited to be part of bringing Auburn and white javas back.

    It's great that new people are starting to keep javas and increase the population. The biggest thing to remember is the need to carefully select breeding stock that conforms to the breed standard.

    Quote:Lora has some nice javas. We got some of our whites and blacks from her about a year or so ago and they have developed well.

    My Java chicks are sprouting wing feathers already and they just hatched five days ago. I bought some Cochins, Sustralorps, and Welummers and NONE of them are as developed as the Javas. They are much more curious and active, too; although when they decide it's nap time, they're all down for the count.

    We'll need to cover the box very soon. I think they'll be able to escape sooner than I had expected.

    Have you notice your chicks to be early bloomers?

    All of my Java chicks seem to sprout wings within days of hatching. I have some now that are a week old that have almost all their wing feathers. My Dels are at the same rate. The only chicks that have progressed faster were the hatchery Dominiques that I had. At a few days old they had enough wing feathers to fly onto the mason jar waterer amd glide back down. Yowser.
