    You come and tell Judy she is wrong and I am right? I get so tired of telling her that and she will not be as upset with you.

    That top picture is a cockerel . He is not pure as he has a pea comb .
    I would say your half breed has no legbar in him . No barring and dark legs . Looks pure EE to me . Pea comb is not tall like in the first picture . So not carrying single comb .

    I see how it is... If you don't see me for a few days it means I am trying to cry myself to sleep since my ducks aren't good enough...

    I have a dumb question: How do I start to wean the bull calf off milk? Do I give it less milk at feeding time or do I water it down? I have no idea and I can't seem to find info that says 'how' not just 'wean calf'.

    Well, why not? It was what I planned to do IF a building ever goes up in Aitkin. I want to live up there for a few weeks at a time.
