If Ana is still parked when I get home, I think I'm going to give her a dozen of my blue egg silkie project eggs to hatch out. I was going to start collecting them To incubate on Sunday but she's ready now so she can test fertility.
My boys sorted themselves out. Rico somehow got over into Romeo's pen and neither Romeo or his girls minded his presence. So he stays there although its not hiw I would have split them up. Cheeky is now the dominant roo in the other pen, but I may have to separate Deli Jr to the third coop if he ever reaches maturity Right now Deli is just like one of the hens.
At some point I will want to rearrange everyone so I can sort out some better breeding groups.
So, I'm holding out hope that Deli Jr is a pure Delaware.. his dad was and I think I still had a Delaware hen in that pen when I collected the eggs for the broody that hatched him. Both of my Delawares were victims of raccoons last year and it would be something special if I had a replacement Delaware roo rather than a backyard mix. Some of my Delaware over dark cornish mix make a lighter color hen so one of those ladies could be his mom. He looks like a Delware.
Anyone on the west side of the state have guinea eggs or keets?
also if anyone has room for one or a pair of buff smooth Sebastopol 1 year old ganders let me know! I’m looking to give them a nice home. They are well mannered minus the fact they try everything they can to escape their pens to mate their sister
We’re located just south of Erie.
