Zilarria?

Here is a pic of one of the babies we hatched out this year. (Of course he had to sit in some poop before he had his pic taken) What do you think?

Wow Susan!

Just goes to show, you hatch enough and all the variations start to show up..... :jumping:


When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Pens are currently filled with Red Cuckoo (Marraduna) and Red Basque (Gorria) breeders, Spitz, and Seramas.

Yep a nice little ermine lad!  :love: I wonder if he'll get a few black spots on his body as he gets older.   Are you going to go for that colour?  You have the best start.  :thumbs:

Re: Zilarria?

I have a couple like this and 1 that is solid white. Most of mine are roos. Hopefully I will have a hen I can pair up with.

Re: Zilarria?

It looks like he still has the barring gene but it should be easy to get rid of that. The Zilarra should have more black in the tail I think. I am really uncertain of the genetic "recipe" of the Zilarra but it looks like a huge step towards that variety for sure.


Raising red cuckoo (marraduna) Euskal Oiloak and self blue (lavender) & black Belgian Bearded d'Uccles.

I believe they should have black tails and hackles like a light Brahma or Colombian rock.

Re: Zilarria?

He would be a great start to a Zilarra project =D  I think my problem is going to be finding a similar hen. All of my "white" EOs are Roos.

He looks good glad the gene came out of somone and lead to him.
