    What color do you want? I have a regular and black shoulder IB male(s) that will be 3 years old this season,,ready to breed.

    Their hens are only 9 months would a 3 yr. old be okay with 2 hens that young?

    That old and the male maybe too agressive for coming 1 yr olds,oh well we have a lot of last years hatched males to choose from as well

    That was my thought as well, good to hear you have younger ones for them.

    Maryschicks was just here and left. They got to see Thang in all his glory,as well as a young thanglette that I'm betting will also be a male,identical to his terror father.
     
  8. What did they get? And if you get a chance I sent you a PM........

    KsKingBee,they chose an IB Pied male with at least 1 copy of white.Yes, I got your pm,but it may be a few days until I can check wingbands,ect to know what I have and Saturday we're going to Sturgis Ky for a huge indoor demo derby.
     
  10. I keep thinking I would like to have a Silver Pied some day when I get my pens in order. You have a real bang-up time at the derby!
