My tiny Maradunna flock Nov. 22 2012

Elevator's stride at 6 months of age.  His legs are yellow, what looks white in the photos is just photo over exposure
Elevator has yellow legs, straight toes, lovely EO personality.  His flaws are a slight discolouration on a tiny part of his beak near his right nostril and a small sprig.

If you look closely you can see the tiny sprig on the back of his comb on his left

This is Back-Up.  He really is flawless but he was slower to mature and something about his conformation bothers me...

The young EO cockeral in the background is very gentle but isn't to standard.  Here are the other three 4 month old boys.  One doesn't have clear barring but the other two show some potential I think:

In the front of the last photo is one of the young Mille pullets

Lovely birds Kathy!!.  Elevator turned out to be a handsome fellow and yes some of your younger ones have some potential :thumbs:  The pictures of the two hens have great colour, I am not breeding my Millie's I have just kept some for layers.

Thanks for posting the :pics:

They are looking great!  I can't wait until spring to get some chicks from Elevator.  Does the left hen with the red zip tie still cause trouble?  She used to get out of the pen here and go lay her egg behind a piece of ply wood that was leaning against a wall and then come look for me to let her back in!

Re: My tiny Maradunna flock Nov. 22 2012

We had to provide a special plywood board in the coop so she can hide there to lay her eggs.  She has the gorrias into the drama of egg laying now!  They "talk" about it for awhile, grumbling then start watching for the coop to be perfectly emprty for privacy.  Then they ignore the nice clean nest boxes and lay their eggs behind the ply board. 

Do you want Elevator bred to the willow legged pullet too or just your two hens?  You get first dibs in April!

I guess I will put the mille fleur pullets with my mille boy if no one wants him.
Paula, your Mille girls could come for a sleep over:whistle:

I think you should put your other girl in with your millie boy as she has a couple of millie spots on her too if your going to keep him anyways.  It's up to you really either or is fine with me.

Re: My tiny Maradunna flock Nov. 22 2012

Some really nice looking birds there. Elevator x gubi's girls might make some nice chicks.

And i would love to see how the Mille chicks turn out. I really do like the look of that Mille boy you have to give away. I have one Mille hen like yours but most of mine have smaller mottle with less white and more black. On their next molt though the mottles get bigger and whiter.

I need to take some pictures to share but mine won't have such lovely green grass like yours M&K.

Re: My tiny Maradunna flock Nov. 22 2012

Sounds like Elevator gets Gubi's girls and the Mille boy gets the three mille girls!  Elevator needs more pullets!  Anyone have some spare Maradunna's pullets for sale? :please:
