I got some Kraienkoppes this last spring. The breed standard put out by the Germans or Dutch (I don't remember which) is that they have 1) small walnut combs 2) red ear lobes I have 7 hens with what looks like ALL white ear lobes. One might be red, but it's about 25% white and I imagine it will only take a couple of weeks before it goes completely white. I have one cock with red ear lobes, but he has a straight comb. I have one cock with white ear lobes and a small walnut comb. I have one cock with ear lobes that look like they are going to be white as they are already partially white right now and I'm guess they will go full white withing a few weeks. His comb is walnut. So 7 hens with white lobes and the only cock with white lobes has a straight comb. I think I have nothing to breed with. So they will do fine as broodies, but I would like to have birds to come a little close to matching what they're supposed to look like. I won't buy anymore, I don't think, until 2012 to infuse them with a little different blood. Suggestions? Comments? Viewpoints? What would you do with what I've got? I'm all ears because I don't know what to do or think.
