last incubation for this year breeding season . started last Sunday .will hatch next month .
145 eggs all from Liza s eggs I picked up . 3 varieties in there .out cross between her line and Avgen import line .
Blue copper rooster AV line X her Blue copper hens .very dark large eggs .
Splash copper rooster liza s line X Black copper hen AV line . big eggs not as dark as a Blue line .
Av line Black copper rooster X Liza s Black copper hens . big dark eggs .

Liza s line lay darker eggs .big and wide chooks .slow feathering type
Avgen line have a long and wide body type with Early feathering type , large oval egg s not as dark .

crossing the 2 lines will unit the correct body type to a correct dark egg color . complete marans chooks .feathered legs .100%

now I have all the blood line I need . all the marans traits .the good and the bad .let them grow and see how is the best .

group #4 are 2 weeks old .the largest group . need to split them into 2 smaller groups .I will separate my chicken from Liza s chickens ,so I can observe them better and easy to look after them like the other groups .70/80 chicks in each group is a best for me .similar size ,similar pens /runs .

Black copper cockerel 9 weeks old ,has too much copper on his chest for the moment ,but he will clear up as he grow .he will be still over coloured ,great to use to add hackle marking to the black pullets .
sired by BM over Baby Blue ,she is over coloured hens .

Blue copper cockerel ,10 weeks old ,hatched from very dark egg #7 .his mama Dalakhania still laying #6 eggs now after 7 months off laying ,special hen .
I like this cockerel body type ,he is a little shorter on his back that all ,hope his tail will be small and correct . love his hackle marking and his solid type .
he will be useful to breed dark egg lines .
I have his true brother lighter blue from a same sire .similar body and 2 half brother from different sire line ,same mama .
I have as well his true sister and his half sister Dalakhania over BB .

Dalakhania and her progeny will be bred separately to form they own line .one hen and 2 roosters ,enough genetic diversity to maintain the line . maybe I will add some thing to it later ,I will see ,
Jose

super busy my friend with this heat and building pens/runs .
98 chicks hatched from Liza s last hatch .
I m very happy with them ,big correct chicks .the cross between Liza s lines and Avgen worked magic .produced Hybrid Vigor , big chicken , that what I was looking for big type .
Now I have the dark eggs layer and the correct body type .need to work on the body color ,that will come with time .build a house first than think about painting it ,not the other way around .

I m going to get Ready of the Birchen line chicks .want to focus on the copper. splash/ Dominant white/ Black Tail Red / Cuckoos .
