    Hello everybody, sorry about my lack of redneck input lately. Between work and the holidays I have been stretched pretty thin. But it looks like I am actually going to get up north to spear some northerns this weekend though. [​IMG]

    Lucky you!


    Where you headed?


    Do you let the bullheads go? Do you practice catch and release on the ones you spear?

    Yes you should get cushion combs and olive eggs . If you use Ed over the creamette you will have sex links . Cockerels will have the white head spot .

    I'll be at the headwaters of the Cloquet river, and the bullheads get to swim on by. No releasing on spearing days, its part of my hammerhandle conservation program.

    Ralphie, if you cross Creamette with Ed you should get green tint to the eggs. Blue x Lt Brown = Green There can be a lot of variability in the actual color.

    So nice to hear you say that! I just re-homed my favorite chicken because I am not allowed a 'roo and he was supposed to be a pullet! Everyday he was getting more interactive and friendlier and prettier....luckily I found him a safe home, but I miss him!

    speaking of chickens, would anybody be interested in adopting my flock? Me and the wife have decided that we want to get our property in top shape so we can get it on the market and find farm. I have been so busy lately that I have a hard time keeping up with chicken chores, and I am sick of cleaning the coop after dark.

    What do you have? Hatchery or breeder?

    How many.


    Have you tried inviting Coffee out for a beer? She will just fill her pockets with your birds as she leaves.. BUT she is my overflow place so I guess that is a bad Idea.
