    in an emergency i have used 'new-skin' superglue with antibiotics, actually coral, one of your brahma girls had a bad neck laceration and it was the only way i could take care of it, might look into that- it is about $5 a bottle



    so possibly the combination then- i'll really never know, but am alot more ontop of things like that...[​IMG] he wasn't even 6 months old yet

    Carl...Folks on the d'Anvers breed page tell me the little three-week old blue chick is a Blue Quail roo. He is beginning to show a little rusty red on his shoulders. He is tiny..but Mighty. May have to name him Mighty Mouse..or Mickey. Then I could pair him with a Minnie.

    That is another posibility, Blue quail Jim does have too. I am sorry if he turned out to be a roo but s/he was very young, and D'anver But Blue quail roo over Quail hens is 50% Blue quail and 50% quail.. So what better male to have?

    My first 2 Mille Fleur pullet's first eggs were fertile, had 8 out of 11 hatch. My best rooster was one of them. - that's Karl, the chicken , not Carl the Jarvis.

    Is that the Spangled OE? If so then they are good to go...

    Oh, I'm not disappointed at all. He is super friendly! He is the first to run up to my hand when I reach i the tub to change water or add feed to the trays. He steps up on my hand if I hold it still.
    SOO CUTE!

    Edit to add...yes it's my lovely pair. Ginger has laid two eggs in two days. I may have to make up a doz to bring you by Tuesday...you enabler you.

    the J-Clips and crimping pliers will work very well for the seams and teh middle where you ahve the wire overlapped. They work great.

    MJ,
    That is a very very very good example of a Millie Fluer Pattern for any breed, then to add thats a project color on a cochin.. Very well done.
