Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

It only took 3 days for all the snow to melt. It was 70 degrees two days ago!

Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

Cute.  They are really growing.  Your little roo is so yellow on his legs and beak and even round his eye, maybe he's homozygous for the yellow skin :thumbsup:

70F is nice! Glad we are coming your way! :roadtrip:

Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

I would have to say that from day one he has had bright yellow/orange comb, nostrils and legs. if he has the dominate alleles does that mean he would have a better chance of having yellow offspring? (I had to look up what you were talking about) =D

I said two days ago it was 70, but it hasn't been too bad since. Mid-50s today. Should be nice for your visit.

Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

Nice pair of chicks.  He has yellow legs, he is homozygous for yellow legs.  yellow is recessive to white.  looks like your pullet is yellow too but unfortunately has willow legs.  Has anyone else noticed that the EO's 4th toe seems short and up higher?

Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

Yes that's right, I need to remind my self about what the pale yellow means genetically again.  I hadn't noticed the 4th toe in person, but I have in the pics too!

So she is yellow in that she has yellow beak and skin? Would the willow be resesive to yellow?

If the two that are bred have yellow legs they can still carry the a more donimate color for legs, as in willow or white?

Are most of you breeding only yellow leg to yellow legs?

Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

yellow or white is the skin colour.  willow or blue is yellow or white skinned with the inside of the leg dark.  Two separate things.  I have a white legged rooster and 4 yellow legged hens and 1 white legged pullet.

Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

I'm wondering if he is developing a side sprig or is it normal. here are a couple of photos of his comb. Also, included close-up photos of his legs for all you leg men/women. =D

Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

Looks like a side sprig to me.  Wow you sure are good at getting the close up's, guess I have a pretty crumby camera or it's just me.  The EO's move around so much I can never get a clear picture. :funny:

Re: 4 weeks old (pix heavy)

They were trying pretty hard to eat those maple seeds, but could crack it open. The ones I cracked open for them, they ate.
They don't get outside much yet so they aren't sure what is going on and pose for the photo shoot. After a little while they started moving around a bit more. I also think because it's just the two of them they stick close to each other.

For all the good photos I get, there are 10 or more that are horrible. I just keep clicking. No more film, just gigabytes.
