    Thought this would be an interesting thread... What all does everyone have in their gamebird flocks?

    Personally, I have:
    1 Smokey
    1 Slate
    3 Cinnie Hens
    1 Cinnie Roo
    1 Cinnie Blueface Roo
    2 Ivory RB Hens
    1 White Roo

    3 Whites
    2 Splash
    1 Pied GRB
    Umm, bunches of cinnies, wilds, RB's and bluefaces... lol...

    6 Breeding Coturnix
    6 Young Coturnix Hens
    6 Young Coturnix Roos

    1 Silkie Mix chick (trying to sell)
    1 Silkie/Cochin subadult
    1 Cochin Bantam Pullet
    1 Silkie pullet?

    2 Jumbo Brown coturnix chicks
    3? A&M's (these A&M's don't seem to be as hardy as the jumbo browns... anyone else notice this, or did I hit a fluke?)

    13 EE eggs in the bator (not mine)
    3 Silkie eggs (not mine, but think I'll end up with them as payment)
    2 Quail chicken things (forget their name, and, again, not mine)
    and... soon to be 15 showgirl/silkie eggs, which ARE mine!!! Squee!



    I think that covers everyone... WAIT... I have two doves, they count! Lol.

    Blargh well lets see here.....


    So many young coturnix please dont ask me to count them, it's safe to say around 50 [​IMG]


    As for adult coturnix
    *Pen one*
    2 golden hens
    1 jumbo brown hen that carries what seems to be the curly gene (she just started laying YESTERDAY)!!!!!
    1 golden roo

    *Pen two has youngsters..again not sure how many I will count them once they are mature*

    *Pen three*
    has 1 A & M roo, and 3 A & M hens

    *Pen four* more youngsters....

    *Pen 5 Jumbo browns
    1 roo, 4 hens

    *Pen 6*
    Dark Tibetan hen over Golden-white-capped roo

    *Pen 7*
    Tuxedo pen, looks like 2 roos and one hen...they get along quite well which is weird but anywho... so far it's staying that way the roos arent even crowing yet but I am getting an egg from th eone i know is a hen and the one roo (that i know is a roo) is mating just no chicks from these eggs just yet but incubating and waiting [​IMG]

    Pen 8
    has 4 reds in it (one red golden, 1 red tuxedo, and 2 reds) along with a pair of young cochin bantams, and 4 button quails, 2 white males, 1 cinnamon hen and one roo that's either just a cinnamon or a cinnamon redbreasted. (btw the buttons are only staying outside for the summer)

    Pen 9
    is my broiler trio.....

    Pen 10 is more youngster coturnix... [​IMG]

    and the other pens aren't filled yet will be once the youngsters are grouped off by sex and color.

    a pair of young mallards (domestic)

    a trio of 1 month old BC marans 2 pullets one cockerel

    a trio of 4 month old BC marans (one may be being sold soon though her eye color isnt correct) 1 cockerel 2 pullets

    1 3 month old cockerel bc marans

    and in the brooder... x amount of coturnix (more hatching as i type this I hear it in the incubator peeping away...) LOL.... along with 3 keeper BC marans, a "refridgerator project" Rhode island red cockerel that huby wont let me get rid of....LOL, and a marans x orpington cross cockerel that's cute and i just havent' decided to get rid of yet. LOL


    Something like 10 turkey eggs in the bator....2 auracana (sp?) eggs, 8 SQ white silkie eggs, 1 silkie cross (im hoping with a auracana), WAy too many guinea eggs to count, something like 20 pheasant eggs, more BC marans eggs (with more coming probably on their way today actually), always popping coturnix eggs in there so cant know the number of them, and hatching buckeyes for a customer... and i *THINK* that's it. LOL


    EDITED because i obviously cannot type LOL

    Just cut down my last generation of adult buttons again to make room for the new generation so currently I only have 1 breeding pen with:

    1 adult red breast slate male
    1 cinnamon red breast hen
    1 double factor hen

    then 5week olds:
    9 from imported stock- most appear to be blue breasted and have lines down their feathers similar to a pharaoh coturnix instead of the barring like my other buttons, 1 silver which has lines down the feathers like the blue breasted, and a pair of cinnamons.

    3 double factor blue from the above breeding pen
    uncounted silvers and slates with red breasted on both those colors and possibly some ivories
    3 cinnamons from a pair I sold last week

    Coturnix I have 83 being butchered next tuesday of assorted colors including most every common color from pharaoh to golden to tuxedo. Then I'm keeping 3 english whites (2 look to be males), a pair of tuxedos, and 2 golden hens.

    Y'all got me beat. I have 1 A&M roo (for sure), 4 A&M's (unsexed), and 20 A&M eggs due to hatch in another week.

    Dh is starting to drool at them, but these guys are all for breeding, not eating. [​IMG]
