    I will have to honestly say, I have no idea. I know about black, blue, and splash genetics pretty well, and lacing. Other then that, its all an educated guess. I, like you have done research. A lot of times I come up empty handed or with more questions. I often fight with the chicken calculator. As for most of the why's we have, I am guessing its dominance, or the amount of copies needed???????????

    Soo bummed, my fav black hen looks like she has ruined her eye beyond repair!! She was stung by a yellow jacket and I was treating it cause it was bothering her and itching her. Well yesterday I was gone all day and didn't see them til they were roosting so I just left her go for the night. Well checked on her this am and her eye is yellow and dead!! Ahhhh y does stuff always happen to your fav bird!! Well now she is inside with her one sister hoping I can help relieve some discomfort and let her get adjusted to just having one eye!! Been feeling like I get ahead of everything them something stupid like this happens :eek:(

    So Sally inspired me to start nagging hubby :)

    He spent most of the day insulating the houses they are currently in. Then he started working on the new coops. This is the back wall.

    It will be divided and will house the calico silkie project and the bantam BL polish. He is going to build a second just like it for the brahma and the orpingtons. I am so excited that they are getting proper housing!!

    My two new silkie girls were lovingly delivered this evening by RoPo. They are just too cute!! But, I have got to STOP buying birds!!! I do however still need a bantam buff brahma roo....

    How was your weekend?
