Blue copper cockerel 10 month old . great body type and body pattern , has few faults but over all is good to breed to right hens . hens with dark rich copper hackle .
has some parasitic white showing in his tail . does not bother me because he will be bred back to his Dam Dalakhania Splash copper hen .
only using him for this purpose . line breeding a month or 2 than he is going to WA to friend of mine to breed him to her Splash /Dominant white hens she got from me years back . dark eggs layer .

pullets group 2/3/4 all together in the hen house before I let them out for the day .
start picking my best dark egg layer from this pen .will take me about 4 weeks to go through them all .
all those pullets where selected for a correct conformation ,only what I need now is the dark eggs layer to pen separately for special attention .

Just lovely Jose, the blue copper young one especially - and good that some of your originals will cross the Nullabor again in the future.
