Thank you

Barney the first cockerel is Kosh's (splash roos) son, and a g'son of Felix (your Jake BLues full brother)... so Larry's great g'son. all their photos somewhere in my gallery, slowly getting there with size in the bloodlines im working on. the blues and whites are about a generation behind him ...so cross fingers...the blue pullets will go back to Kosh this year and the Dom whites will go to Barney....should get some corkers out of this. AND I have the yellow legs now permanently in the Dom whites. just working on the size. :thumbs:

Not letting chicks get in the way of Cochin projects, this is the father of these chicks. So it is obvious he only has one copy of Dominant white. :thumbs:

Had enough yet :hmmm: , nope, no way, not yet, never :thumbs:

Love babies :chicks:

And the G/L girl has a real " camo" baby under her, I didn't notice it until I zoomed in.

Also I can't open the pic of " Dad" , don't know if it's just me :roll: or others too :aaargh:

And is it warming up over there yet? We are just getting a tad "Cool" , been down to minus 2 so far and not even winter yet :shock: :rofl:

Cheers

Victoria

Great photos, Timbo.
Do you have any information on your buff laced roo?

I'm amazed at how many projects you must be working on at the same time.

Keep the pic's coming :thumbs:

My wife says I've got two projects on!! Two b**dy many projects!!! :biggrin: :biggrin:

What sort of info did you want on the Cockerel Daza? He is from Wyandotte heritage, he Dominant white (I) rather than splash (Bl/Bl) laced red hence the gold/red hackles with no blue grey. He has only 1 copy of 'I' so 50% of his progeny are the same as him 50% the same as their mom, as long as they are laced of course. Now I've got single comb, the leg feather still appears to be a problem, The very yellow legged wyandotte lines seem to have more leg feather regressive genes, the paler legged lines would appear the feather up relatively easily in comparison.

Jilly potter down in Kent (Best legbar breeder in the country) wanted that silver laced brahma type cockerel I hatched so we swapped! You can see he is of wyandotte phenotype though! Just need some pullets this year so I can put the gold laced boy with them, to get a more cochin type white laced red cockerel.

Image

I don't normally hatch under hens, and it hasn't been something I've tried for, they just keep going broody. These wyandotte X cochins are just broody machines. And the mottles are just as bad. I'll put some barred picks up when I have cleaned their hut out. :thumbs:

Have a look at just my hatchery! No broodies
