    Wish me luck gents. I got 4 redquill eggs on day 20. One is peeping but no pips yet and im getting kinda worried now. This is the only other breed I want and can't seem to make it happen.

    A lot of people really like em though. I guess for me they don't have the sleek neat appearance that most Americans have. Seem somewhat awkward I guess.

    I like their uprightness so wanted a couple for lawn ornaments but it didn't go well. The stag looked the part but his sisters were straight comb barred rock looking everything an asil is not. U can see one in the background

    Post a pic of those chicks showing pattern.


    If I can get my grubby hands on the proper brown red strain I can create almost from scratch redquill colored birds.
