Re: Hungarian Yellows!

I want Hungarian yellows too :oops: Their Canadian story is so amazing, I just read it again. Are you going to try hatching another set of eggs from Dr. C Susan?

If you are serious PG, I'll hatch some for you. Anyone else want me to ship them some eggs ?

Re: Hungarian Yellows!

:congrats: Susan.

I would love some eggs but I have the last batch in the incubator to hatch Friday.  Not sure where I am going to put all the hatch lings, will not be keeping them all.  Maybe in around July when I see what I have that I am keeping and what I have room for :doI?:


MD, by the way I love your post!!!!   :funny:

Oh good lord...this is how I get myself in trouble :chairhide: too many pretty chooks. What are your plans with these Susan? And what are you thinking you will do with the gorria EOs? Maybe we should have a discussion about this on the messenger thingy that your kids set us up on, any evening when you have time.

Re: Hungarian Yellows!

PG that's why my signature say's "enjoying too may pretty chooks" why does there have too be soooo many.  :nervous:  Can get a person into trouble fast, but these are special birds and worth making some room for.

Re: Hungarian Yellows!

Susan, send me as many as you can get.  I will try to look after and share them and if they don't fit in here after a year, I will find them breeding homes.  I am happy to help bring them to Ontario and I'd love to see them in person.  The week of June 4 th is best, sorry I'm in my phone so I didn't reread all the above.  There are other OK weeks in June too where I am off wed-fri

Re: Hungarian Yellows!

Susan, following our conversation last night I have some questions for you, you may need to speak to Dr. C to get answers to some and not sure when/if you would have a chance to to do so but:

1. If you get eggs from him again, would it be possible that they be from a different breeding group of hens/roosters?
This question is because I think it would be very beneficial for you to try to represent as much of the genetic diversity in his flock in yours. I am not sure how inbred his flock is but I am thinking you run the risk of ending up with a small breeding group that are all very closely related and do not represent the full genetics of his flock if you aren't careful.

2. Has Dr. Crawford seen any evidence of inbreeding depression? If yes, how is it manifesting i itself?
As this will be what you need to watch for and try to select against.

3. What other non desirable traits is he aware of in his flock.
This will help you know what to watch for as well when selecting breeding stock.

2. Does he know of any other breeding flocks of Hungarian yellows in Canada? Is so how far removed from his flock are they?
I see on BYC Call Ducks in Ontario has (or had) some that I beleive came from a profs flock in Ontario (perhaps a friend of Dr. C's was also raising them?) It may be wise to try to get birds from a flock that has been separate from Dr. C's for a few generations if he is seeing inbreeding depression. It sounds like the Ontario flock has issues though.

As you can see I am having great difficulty sticking to my decision not to try a breeding flock of these birds :nervous: yah, basically I am failing miserably :oops: If by getting more eggs (even from Dr. C) and hatching another set you could increase the genetic base of your breeding flock I think you should do it. Then my mind goes to the idea of you keeping a roo from hatch #1 and me (:oops:) keeping a roo from hatch #2 and tracking where the hens came from so our flock have maximum diversity.  Yah....I am in bad shape....we may need to message again.... I will also pay for eggs/shipping if you want to do it that way instead but it would need to be soon.

I need to get working on the barn as I am going to need it by fall :whistle:

Re: Hungarian Yellows!

Oh I know, I am a classic addict...I should start a new thread, "you know you are an addict if..."

So when do we talk details and logistics?

Re: Hungarian Yellows!

NP all I keep thinking is that there are much worse addictions that to chickens, do you think that is also a symptom of addiction, rationalizing why it is okay to be addicted.

Susan, that sounds great :thumbs:
