Also for experiment I'm going to try this Black cockerel from a show line, 8 months old and already around 5 kilos, he is huge.

Hi mycoola,

I am not a expert when it comes to Wyandottes, but to me he looks like he has the goods. Do you use facebook? only reason I ask there are some very good Wyandotte facebook pages with good leads and information.

mycoola,

He is a very impressive boy, how do you find your Wyandotes are they a good broody breed?

Yes 38 studs, I'm on quite a few Wyandotte sites on Facebook, probably at least 7 chicken sites, 4 specifically Wyandotte's, 3 of which is purely Blr.
As for broodies they known for being that.
I did have some bantam silver laced, and they were a pain for going broody, my bantam blr occasionally, and have had only one blr standard ever go broody.
The American site blrw sop is a real eye opener as their blr are magnificent, hopefully we will get there.

Unfortunately I lost the Black cockerel, real fast too. So can only go by past experience, should have partial lacing.

He was fine on that Friday, Saturday. Sunday morning was hunched , list less and not eating. Isolated him and treated for Cocci, next day was gone, bright green poo, no blood in poo as normal for Cocci. If I had some triple C or Oximax don't know if would have made a difference. Up until then had never used antibiotics.

No replacement Jose , but have 2 blue laced red Wyandotte Cockerals that I'm going to use this season anyway. Going to use the 4 mature hens , possibly swapping cockerals mid season and hatch another batch. will let last year's girls go a whole laying season before using.Hoping next year to get a Big blr cockerel from Qld, he has used a red line which has increased both size and type.
