The Brave cockerel

Post by Ontario Chick » Thu Sep 27, 2018 7:29 pm

or possibly a foolhardy one or perhaps just a little slow ;) but he did raise alarm and lost a handful of feathers for his troubles, so may have to keep him ?
Problem is, what would I breed him to?
This is a place where everybody has a job, so to keep him I need to justify it.
Out of Columbian male and Black hens, he has some fairly attractive leakage on wings and the type isn't too bad.
What do you think?

some random feathers still coming off of him, otherwise no damage.

I can't tell is that feather loss or leakage on the wings?
I would sell him off with a hen for company, I was thinking he was Columbian for you to keep him.

It's leakage, if he was Columbian I would be in seventh heaven :)

I think you should start a new line :dance: Find yourself some silver pencilled, or silver laced, or even start a barred wyandotte project :dance:

Or just breed give him a couple nice Columbian hens, and hope the Columbian restriction does its' magic ;)
