    I recently hatched 2 eggs from Lester and the girls (bbs Wyandottes). Had put 3 of their eggs in the bator with the blue wheaten ameraucana eggs as fillers. OK, also cus I am curious on how their babies will turn out.

    Babies are so cute. I will get some pics this evening when I get home from work.

    Has anyone seen or have any of Sand Hill Preservation Center's LF Buff Wyandottes? Do you know anything about them? Where they came from? From show lines or production lines? Anything else?

    Here are the pics I took with the 2 Blue/Black Wyandottes. They moved around alot so it was hard to get them.

    First is a hatch pic:

    One chick has yellow on her wings and the other has more black. They are both adorable. Hopefully they are both girls. The buff looking chicks are the Blue Wheaten Ameraucanas that are their hatch buddies.

    These are my lovely Buff girls. I found them by chance last year and am so happy with them, they are my best layers and one of the girls is currently helping a duck hen brood eggs. [​IMG] ...... (i just put 7 more pullets & 1 cockeral on order today! Due in early July!)

    Has anyone here ever crossed a BLRW with a Buff? I have Buff hens & a Splash Blue Laced Red roo & I was planning on putting some eggs in the incubator in the next day or so. I was just wondering if anyone had pics of their outcomes?

    This is "Pinky", named for his badly-colored legs.

    Follow-up on Bleenie's question* about breeding to splash roosters. Is there a breeding to splash that results in sex-links? I think someone mentioned that a while ago, possibly even in this thread, possibly in an answer to a less serious question of mine, but I can't find it now.

    Secondarily: if you were driven to aquire a non-BLRW hen or hens to give your splash BLRW rooster more domestic tranquility, what colors of Wyandotte would make most sense? What (terrible to contemplate, I know!) non-Wyandotte breeds would be the best fit in a Wyandotte pen, either white egg layers so that eggs could be chosen for hatching more easily, or breedings producing sex-links, or both?

    Did you see my ad for Wyandotte eggs wanted? [​IMG] I got a couple nice replies for SLW & BLRW eggs that arent too far away, i have to write them back in a little bit.

    I also have some other, non-wyandotte hens, in the pen with him. since i am not sure exactly who's eggs are who's besides the olive's & RIR's, I just decided to set tham all and see what I get... Only keeping the chicks with rose combs though. I will pick out the mixes & roos once they're older. It should be fun to see the colors i get from buff x splashblr. splashy buff? [​IMG]
