Thank ya cmom
I have some nice dark chicks out of my last hatch. I hope they turn out as nice as yours... Here are the mothers when they were younger. I also have some Red Sex Links there too, and my Rhode Island Whites.
I remember this picture from when you first posted it. lol I don't forget to many things "yet". I used to have the red sex links also. They sure do lay and a monster egg. I got rid of all mine. I hoping to only have HRIR's by this time next year.
I wish I could say that I don't forget. I have to write everything down before I forget it. A fox got 4 of my HRIR girls last night. We set traps out today. I saw the fox with the birds.
Oh my gosh, so sorry. I had a coon visit about a month ago and got two of my layer flock. I had to do some changing of things and haven't had any problems since. Sure hope it stays that way.
So sorry to hear that...it's never fun losing our birds, and worse to see it happen. Good luck with the trap.
I had a opossum the other morning making a b-line right for the chickens, with nose in the air. I ran straight at him. The only thing I could fine at the moment was a oak 2x2 sitting against the house. Well that opossum is buzzard feed in the back lot now. Nothing, don't care what it is is getting in my chickens!!!
On a better note. lol Here is one of Ron's girls he sent me. Starting to feather in nicely.
Thank you very much, you are correct there is a definite fear for me of delving in to something like this. I dong have a fear of losing, I'm no sore loser i think it is just the unknown and new experience of it all. The meeting new people and not knowing Half of what they do on these birds and yea ill appreciate the knowledge but just the whole experience frightens me a little.
I did find a show to go to in lucasville, Ohio may 25th! im pretty excited and I plan to buy if I see something I really want.
I'm stuck on the fence right now of which breed I would like to get into if I were to show and breed. I really love my silkies and HRIR and I guess I could try both but seems like a lot to take on for a beginner.
I will do what you said and start taking notes and contacting to find where my most local shows are.
All this brings me to my next question? What made you choose HRIRs and why did you stay with it? Why not a different breed? I'm very new and both the breeds I'm interested in are 2wk old chicks sitting in my brooder, so that's as far as my experience goes. Both bought from some decent lines.
Sry to hear about that fox cmom. Had the same problem here last year, had to redo everything and then a hawk so redid it again. No problems since hope it stays that way.
