    I had 2 strays show up and of course I was very nervous but all ended fine. The chickens, all ages showed them their place in the flock which is very low. One is more the protector of the chickens and the other thinks he is a chicken. He eats, drinks and sleeps with them. I would just be very watchful at first to be sure all goes well.

    How about some Naked Neck Welsummers (a project of mine.) These are F1's

    They hatched the beginning of January. I plan on putting them with a pure Welsummer for the F2 generation. I will only keep the NN offspring and keep going back to Welsummer until I get the appearance and egg color that I am looking for.

    mrheinz77 beautiful group ! Welsummers are one of my favorite from my group. Good foragers, layers, hardy and verbal, she is rather independent also.

    I decided my first step is variety. I plan to put my calm but very young GoldLaced bearded Polish over adult ams, marans, wyandotte, brabanter, welsummer, ee and whatever else I have ?? Nakedness will be last since it should be easy if I can find a nice naked male. But another decision is to have only one male at a time.

    Cool project. Dark eggs and naked necks. The only thing missing is frizzle and crest and dark skin.[​IMG]
