Has anyone found these to be feather sexable at hatch by chance?
No, but they aren't that hard to sex after about 4 weeks old.
darn, was just hoping to not have to wait a few weeks. Oh well. Thank you Bryce.
When did your Svart Hona's start laying?
I have two young pairs of svarts, they are mating so should be laying soon
Mine start at right around 5 months
Is there a breeding standard for them yet? I have some little guys I hatched a few weeks ago. They seem to have a little pink on the end of the toe and a little white on the end of the wing.
The blacker the better. Ultimately, you shouldn't be getting white toes and white feathers but we all have to start somewhere.
Take the birds you hatched and breed them. Hatch A LOT and cull A LOT to achieve better stock.
I feel very proud to be part of a preservation of such a beautiful bird. I shall do my best.
Can anyone weigh in on the importance of obtaining papers for svarts from the breeder so you can prove they were imported legally? Ewe Crazy, do you all offer papers?
Thanks so much!
