Congrats Liz!

I'd say you were fine if you did all the same breed. As long as you didn't add any timid breeds later. I only had 1 blrw whom turned out to be a roo. Super sweetie! Prob cause the girls picking on him!

LOL! Not my dh... he'd see nothing but walking drumsticks. The kids keep trying to name the cull roos I'm fattening and dh keeps saying sure you can name them! This one's extra crispy, this one's kentucky fried and this one's "n'dumplins".

Re: ****Winter**** Chicken Moma chat thread. Join in the chat!

woohooo! Took a little longer to get the incubator dialed in this time, I'd made some modifications since the first time I used it but I'm running at 99.5-100 now and holding 42% humidity. A mason jar of water in front of the thermostat made a huge difference. Looks like all my baby egglets should be here within a couple days of each other so fingers crossed I will be able to put them all in at once!

Re: ****Winter**** Chicken Moma chat thread. Join in the chat!

and since I'm talking to myself, I love most chicken people, but I get really damn tired of the snotty rants people post about how easter eggers are NOT ameraucanas, and that they're mongrels, mutts, accidental. Really. Then tell me how all these people across the nations managed to replicate the exact "mongrel" that lays a blue egg and has a beard. Not only that, but despite lacking a specific color pattern they breed true. Hm. Something stinks. Who the he-double hockey sticks cares if your chicken cost more because it's "purebred". You mean it breeds true and lays a blue egg? Well whattayaknow... so does mine. End rant. LOL

I just had this rant, lol. I let loose on Sarah about her Am's. Dang snobs! Even the EE site is kinda tough on the subject. I think it's more of a defensive thing though. Blah blah is all I have to say about those people. Am's are great about mixed unexpected colors. Why discriminate again the ones that pop out not those cpl allowed colors? It's shamefull is what it is. Just like going to a dog show, people so serious and uppity. Animals make us nuts! That's why I left the amimal med field and moved on to people. People were just as hard to work with in peds though!!

Re: ****Winter**** Chicken Moma chat thread. Join in the chat!

yeah she and I had that gripe- about too. There's only one reason that these people get so defensive even though their beloved "purbred" birds ARE related to EE's, and that's the money they're making off that title. Period.

ETA: and I think I'm gonna have to steer clear of this website today because apparently twtwaffle tuesday is in full swing and I'm going to find it very hard not to say anything to these jerks today. GRR..

Honestly in my opinion EE's are much more interesting. You get these cute little bearded babies, and all the sudden *boom* a few weeks later they look entirely different. Trying to guess what they will look like as adults is impossible. Whereas with true "Ameracauna's" they don't change a lot. There are only 8 'accepted' colors. I also have heard that many judges at these big poultry shows have mistaken EE's for Ameracaunas. Go figure.
