Lucky and Oddball

Lucky - of the lucky toe, and Oddball - as in 'well that's a pretty chick!'

Lucky's the sole EO survivor of the Coop d' Zaster ... does the TOE knock her  out of next years breeding pens?

Re: Lucky and Oddball

In regards to Lucky, with that toe I would not put her in the breeding pen but keep her for your laying pen :thumbs:  The crooked toes are genetic.

Re: Lucky and Oddball

Oddball is great.  FRF, is she a light blue or do you call her a splash?

Re: Lucky and Oddball

NP she would be splash.  I love the BLRW their feather lacing remind me of fish scales.  I hatched three last weekend I am hoping they are pullets :please:

Re: Lucky and Oddball

Would those be your versions of Pullets FRF? The type that crow unexpectantly :whistle:

Re: Lucky and Oddball

Now now Lynn I don't intentionally give you roosters in pullets clothing that would just be mean..........but it is too darn funny though :funny::chairhide:

My little fellows are too young yet to tell they are only one week old, also hatch one BM d'uccle it is sooooo tiny.

Re: Lucky and Oddball

I got my first two pullet eggs yesterday too MD...EOs at 23 weeks and no artificial light, I actually didn't expect them to start laying until I moved them as our days are getting short very fast!

Beau, Lucky and Oddball are all beautiful. He's huge! Where did Oddball go??

Re: Lucky and Oddball

Oddball went to be paired up with a handsome lad of a feather, to make some more beautiful chicks like her! :love:  - 'bout 200miles South and West of here.

Beats schlepping around the henhouse here with a bunch of featherpicked old biddies! :P

Re: Lucky and Oddball

Yah Lucky, congrats on her first egg :cheer:  I have had some pullets lay their first eggs small and some large, now they have kind of evened out at laying a med. sized egg.

That Barred rooster is HUGE :shock:

Lucky has turned out to be a beautiful hen and I am so glad Oddball got a good home :happycrowd"

Re: Lucky and Oddball

Lucky is really pretty. Love her coloring. That barred rock is a nice looking boy. Are you keeping him or just fattening him up. :eat:

He was the biggest of the boys y'all got to see the last time we got together. He'll be the next cross in my backup meatie project...  :eat: Don't tell, but I'm gonna call 'em Giant Barred Euskalorps! :funny:
