Lovely breeding flock of EOs. I see a Mille fleur made the cut? I think I am going to specifically select a line of Mille fleurs.

Re: My breeding EO's for next year.....

Thanks everyone. =D 
PG that Millie will be coming out of there once I put the rooster in.  She only seems to have a bit of the Millie markings on her neck?  Rooster #1 (Kazoo) started out having a beautiful comb but now the back of it is flopping over, but I think the rest of him is great I love his feather colour.   He is more aggressive than the lighter rooster #2.  He has been picking on rooster # 2 and has him such a tizzy most of the time, if you notice in the picture he is too close to him and was starting to panic.  They will have to sort it out as I have no place to put one rooster unless it's in with the girls and I want the girls to mature before having to deal with a rooster.

Re: My breeding EO's for next year.....

They are looking good. :thumbsup: I have an awesome millie rooster here to match to that millie girl.  I have no room here to breed another colour unfortunately.  I did hatch lots of millie girls this year but she was my favorite.

Well the Millie hens that I did hatch have gone into the "layer pen".  They really are beautiful and they will lay some nice big, shiny eggs :thumbsup:

Re: My breeding EO's for next year.....

Gaa! I'm so jealous. My 3 pullets are just started laying, and I took a decent sized pullet egg from my favorite (a millie also) and stuck it in with my Black Peny Hatch that goes into the bator tonight or tomorrow. I know I shouldn't...but I couldn't wait to get my first EO in there lol! My 3 hens that will be giving me hatching eggs are 1 standard EO color, 1 Millie, and a Deer Colored pullet.

Your boys look great! The dark barring is awesome on their tails, very saucy! I bet they will throw some beautiful babies for you! Good luck!

Re: My breeding EO's for next year.....

I know they always want to see you, that's why I tossed them a pear so that I could get them in one spot to take the picture.  They were really interested in the strap on the camera that was dangling

I love the hen on the upper right, she almost looks like she is laced.

Re: My breeding EO's for next year.....

Great looking flock!   Good luck with the roosters.  I didn't have any problems with my roosters when they were all together with no hens in the pen.

Re: My breeding EO's for next year.....

Thanks Susan.  Well the lighter rooster was getting so brow beaten that he escaped the pen himself :shock:  So he is hanging out with the older girls and Kazoo is by himself.

Gubi I missed this, do you have any pictures of your Millie rooster?  I am wondering what the Mille fleur looks like in the roosters.

Re: My breeding EO's for next year.....

I do have pictures of him, I'll post at a later date.  I believe that the millie EO roosters are still barred but you can see the millie show at the end of their feathers.  I can show you current pictures but I'm not sure which one he is.  I do know he was one of the heavier birds in the freezer.

Re: My breeding EO's for next year.....

Susan and I have noticed that the average size of the millie hens seems to be a bit on the large side as well. By far my heaviest hen is Gem my mille fleur. I love the look of them as well. I am debating whether to keep a rooster specifically to breed with the millies or whether to just keep the pullets with a rooster that complements them and see what I get. I do think it's a recessive trait though so it makes the most sense to pick a nice big rooster with that in mind, I'm just not sure if I have any!

I have noticed that as well that the millie hens are bigger but the deer coloured ones seem to be as well. :huh:
