Hey guys! Last year was kind of a loss for me as far as chickens go. Between building a new house and having a baby, all I did was hatch guinea fowl eggs that we found around the property.

But today I made a step in the right direction, we just got rid of the last of our surplus bantam mix roosters and I was able to use their containment unit to set up my first breeding pen! This is Hop-a-long, one of 3 Cornish roos that was maimed by a bully Blue Cochin I had (I sold him), along with my two original Dark Cornish girls from my trio and the lone White I have left from eggs I got from Fairview01. I had a White cockerel hatch too but he died of suicidal stupidity. Hop-a-long has recovered nicely. He only has a lip if he tries to move fast.

Someone mentioned to me if I breed white to Dark, I might get spangled offspring, which I can breed for to make the spangling more intense. We'll see what we get. :fl

I think I might need to add a light to their coop to get things moving.
