Thank you for sharing!! Sounds delicious, I'm looking forward to giving it a try.
If you have the info that would be great.
I was literally chased out of the house today. Calling the police with all kinds of fake stories and ********.
Standing my ground was an option, but in China the person who is right depends on anything but facts. If you have a louder voice and more people screaming for your team you win.
Lovely country, I wont ever be going back.
Sitting in the airport after blowing another thousand to get home.
Maybe I should have got a hotel and waited, but I want to get back to a real country.
Plus who knows what they would have had time to come up with if I had stuck in around.
I want to try to build a very pretty meat bird so eating the roosters feels special (and a little sad).
Plus I just want to play with how the dark gene works. Any info on large Silkies woudl be awesome.
From there I need to find another really dark gene bird. I think the novelty of black meat will catch on soon.
Took me a while to find her, her byc name is shadowpaints, she hasn't been on byc in quite a while, but her personal page has a link to her web page. The last time I pm'ed her she said her roos were getting to 10 lbs at 6ish moths old I believe. She said she had good dark skin color and good comb conformation and was working on better leg feathering, but that was some time ago.
I can't wait to see what you come up with here in the US!
I am sending safe travel wishes your way.
whata your idea of a big silkie? i was given 2 silkie roos and to me they seem on the large side.. ithought silkies were bantams, but these guys are standard size
Thank you so much for the name, I'll go from there.
The "Black Phoenix" （黑凤凰鸡） is what I have read to believe to be the original Silkie before it was bred down for size and cuteness.
They were full sized and in most farms still are. They were used for medicine soups and the like. Therefore they need to be eating size but can be smaller than what you would normally want for family dinner.
My idea of big is 10 pounds or over.
I forgot to add I am back home safe. Goooood to be back
I am so happy that you made is back safely!
