Gertrude has a twin sister, Crooked Toes, Just picture Gertrude with a crooked foot.
Quote:The ones with pink bands on came from you, as well as the pullet.
I'll have to say, I stand by my comments makes no difference from whoever they came, the pullet seems nice on the type. If those pink banded cockerels really look like that at ease, then I'd keep the best one, maybe #6,for a blood line and then cull the rest. They seemed a little skittish in the photos. You don't want them dragging their breast and drooping tails. However, you have enough to work with next year.
Try to get another pic of #6 with him more at ease. I usually sit on a bucket and have to wait several minutes for them to get used to me being there and they will go back to being at ease. That way you can get more of a side profile pic. Do you have any weights on them? I really like #2 if he holds his head up.. Is the the closest one in the last pic also?
Quote:Yes that is the same one. I still have not weighed them. I believe #1 is the heaviest though.
#2 is also pictured in the back of picture #1.
I will get their weights. I am leaving for Omaha (to pick up some of those Reese BRs), and will be back Sunday.
Here is a pic of one of my two little BR's.. Her name is Midnight (my 15 year old named this one lol) Super Friendly.
Here a few more pictures of my birds.
Large Blue. He has good type but poor color, but he should still produce some decent offspring this year into early next year.
Barred Hen of mine. She usually holds her tail correctly so I don't know why she didn't for this picture.
Two buff males that I just picked up a few weeks back.
One of my many columbian males. His tail is a little high, but he has good color, and a real nice head on him. The pullet in back is now at Scott's.
I have two other pictures on the heritage thread if you want to see them.
Do you have any girls to go with those buff boys? They are gorgeous.
Quote:Yes I do. I have 5 females I picked up as well. They are all going into the breeding pen withing a few weeks with the cock bird I have. The cockerel still has a bit of growing left to do.
as a general whole, do yall feel the quality of the hatchery white rock has been demenished as much as the hatchery barred rock, as far as being a meat/primary, and egg /secondary chicken?
going to pick up 5 SP pullets and a cockerel in two weeks time, from SQ breeder can't wait, may get some Gold laced Wyandottes if he has some for sale to, saw some at the fair to day...they are to die for.... My random thing for the day
