Quoting you again because I am out of ovations! Beautiful!
Ralphie, what is this supposed eye defect, and would it be likely that it would be passed on to chicks?
I am somewhat concerned about Coffee1st, as she made a remark regarding Ole's sexual deviance being a learned trait. I would hope she would be speculating that Ralphie might teach such bad habits, as he is a confessed "redneck". I am on the other hand a man of culture and refined behavioral habits.
Thank you so much Rhett's. If you got 5 gallon buckets, water and cold air you can do this.
I really do not know much about it, Kevin Porter mentioned it and showed a page from a 1940's turkey book that referenced it. It is attached to the "D" slate gene, If you have a double D turkey the disorder can express itself.
It is thought to cause vision problems and possibly leads to blindness. I checked all my Self blues as they are DD also, I saw one bird that could have what I would call a small eye. I might just make her my token female Freezer camp counselor. The rusty Lavender is a DD but it has huge eyes.
I am going to take Kevin's word on this over my desire for poults. I do not want to pass this along so I will be very careful as to the birds I allow to breed.
As far as Ole goes, I am thinking he picked it up genetically or from the person you got Ole from. Having you or myself as role models Ole should have been a candidate for sainthood.
Setting eggs on Christmas? Nice!
Will you add eggs as you get them, or will you only be running the 2 eggs plus what you get tomorrow and fridays?
I am planning to set New years day, I should have 14-18 by then if they keep laying.
As long as I have 10 I will set.
Oh poor Ginger!
Those are beautiful!
Thank you Erlibird. They--for as simple to make as they are--make a statement. And you know me I love cheap stuff. LOL.
Ralphie. That's exciting that you discovered the girls were laying and now laying in designated nest. Diamonds are a girl's best friend. LOL. And it seems January 21st-ish will be a real sparkly noodley day! Are you joining a Hatch-a-long for other New year day setters?
There's some youtube videos on caponizing roosters. IDK...Ralph...it's beyond anything I would want to try myself. Let alone with a big flopping bird like that.
EJB and Ralph you are model citizens here on BYC.
Ole has fine examples indeed.
