Re: ~~December~~ Chicken Moma Chat Thread. :) Come chat!

Yes I am!!! I want them for our keep flock, the main gals. We even decided to keep on a cpl retirees, lol. I want the variety you have and the color in our basket. These will most likely just be kept to a low # like 2 or 3:1 for breeding. Gotta get to work on plans for pens. Ray doesn't know all of this yet. He knows some, just not the more than a cpl breeding coops/runs thing, lol. I'll prob have everyone together for a while if we can't get it done in time. I dunno just yet? I'd be honored to have some of your Liz! Their yours!


Ah, I've gotta head to bed.

Re: ~~December~~ Chicken Moma Chat Thread. :) Come chat!

Hey Liz, if I do get seperate breeding pens going when these all get bigger, I'll send you whatever you want! I also am pretty sure I will have the cream legbar's and Norwegian Jaerhons, also some spectacular silkies. Those will be spring I think?All from some fancy rare bloodline. I'm trading $200 worth of stuff without shipping of 3 lfrb's included in that $ for them all. Also a rare duck breed for Cayden. I would never pay those prices, but I needed the stuff gone, she was iso it all and I wanted the breeds she had. She's actually gonna hatch them for me so she can sex them. 2 male and 4 pullets of each, then 12 of the ducks. Silver Appleyard. Lay 250 av eggs per yr, huge meat birds, and friendly. She said the 2 chicken breeds were importet to be replinished as they were becoming way to rare. She's part of the repopulation program and runs some her regional program. Very nice Moma! She's wiping me out of cd's, trainers, gjmmies, and wool, lol!

Mellting! Look at those babies!!!

Because they are your Liz! It'd be an honor for me. They would be part of our main flock, our layers that get to free-range. I'm sure I'd have plenty of these to incubate, but they wouldn't be yours. I really cherrish the kind friendship you have offered me and I'd love to go out to let the flock out in the am and have a cpl of your babies run up.


FODIE_______ Did you find you pup???!!!!?????

Liz, what's mine is yours. If all works out, I'd be happy to get you set up with a breeding trio or whatever. The eggs go for $50 per 6 from what I have found. And they need repopulating. It would be a favor to the breed. Plus, they could pay for feed. I think I would still want to free range them on every other day, like a scedual. If I can have 3 breeding groups in their own homes, I'd free range every 4th days or maybe half the day and the main girls in the first half of the day. Or do larger runs? I have no clue. Too many dreams to figure it out, lol.

Re: ~~December~~ Chicken Moma Chat Thread. :) Come chat!

Dh might kill me if I set up breeding pens. It would depend on whether we stay here or not. I would love a "surprise" mix from your flock though.

Ok so I'm going to take a guess what the babies are going to look like just for fun!

I think Sophia's going to be this with stronger patterning on the hackles and back:

her sister lena is going to look like this:


Tessa, like a cross of the two moms, like this:

and maria (mo - think this is a boy!)
if it's a boy:

if a girl, a little carbon copy of mom.


Should be interesting what I get with a larger hatch. Looks like Sophia is the only one who will not be some combination of black/white. though.

Those are going to be fun Sarah! you're going to need a few more coops. Yes I love them! But they're going to have to wait until some of my flock ages out. Dh is already doing the "how many are you keeping!?" thing.
