    I would have offered to help, but since I entered a few of the contests it'd open a possibility to cheating (though I wouldn't do that) [​IMG].

    I usually did not because up until recently I only kept games and they have such a short laying season (Spring-late summer typically) I hatched all I could and occasionally sold mature birds. I really prefer it that way so I can judge the quality of the birds being sold, to make sure any culls don't slip through. I'm slowly working my way out of the games and keeping only Kraienk√∂ppe though, I've not raised any of them as I only started with them this February but I notice that at least one or two hens seems to be taking a interest in the nest now (no eggs yet). Not sure if they will lay this winter or not, if not that is fine as spring is only a few months [​IMG].

    Once I have just the Kraienköppe, if they lay extremely well I realize I'll have a surplus of eggs and possibly limited space (though I have enough room to keep hundreds, if not in pens- free ranging) if I raise enough offspring. If they throw good birds then I may consider trying to sell some, but for now I'm focusing on raising as many as I can and culling down to hopefully only the best.. I've got two cockerels I plan to use for breeding and for now somewhere between 6-8 hens I believe that meet my requirements fairly well.

    Also got some projects I want to try eventually, possibly using a Kraienkopp cockerel over a Shamo hen I think has at least a pea comb modified by the walnut gene (as I won't use a pea comb in my breeding program, only walnut and in this case a hen I believe to be a walnut/pea; it's not a walnut but isn't a proper pea comb) and also a Malay cockerel which though a bantam I think will help the project in weight/possibly type. I doubt the project eggs will be available, but if the "pure" ones work out- maybe some of those only from pairs that I find to throw good offspring as I don't want to sell culls.

    God bless,
    Daniel.
