Wow look at that blue in Ari's wing feathers. He is stunning !
Thanks, they are actually black, but shine purple and green depending on the light. He is so bright he almost looks metallic.
I'm with Flower on this! Beautiful boy!!
So I posted a while back about hatching 4 barred NN chicks. Two are black.. They look to have double dose of the NN gene, as they have those naked strips down the back and belly and a mostly naked butt. So Brian must be the daddy of those two. Mother could have been the black NN girls (Spock or Spock) or maybe Murtle who is reddish, though I vote one of the Spocks as the mother.
Will have to get some pictures soon. The barred NNs are outgrowing the two blacks.
Can't wait to see the pics. I lost all my barred NN boys, they all died?????? None of the girls in that batch did, they are all healthy and happy, just started laying a couple of months ago. None of the barred were girls. I am guessing it was something genetic.
None of my barred were girls either Kassaundra!
Out of these barred, at least one appears to be a male so far. Can't say on the other 2.
The two black NNs have pea combs as well, where only one of the barred ones do. I do not breed single combed NNs, as we like the green eggs they lay.
I didn't breed my barred NN's, the barring was from dominques so I had single and rose(ish) combs on my barreds. I like the colored eggs as well, and while I don't mind a small single comb, I don't find the big combs and wattles asthetically pleasing. My new NN boy has a weird cross of a single and ???? comb it is similar to the hooda's odd comb.
Those weren't the ones that hatched from my eggs were they?
I ended up with 1 barred hen from the same matings of the eggs you recieved from me.
No, those eggs are where I got Mensa from, and I believe she was the only hatch from them.
Will be hatching NN eggs in Jan....you can have any roos I get!!!!!
