Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

Mine are in lockdown :nervous:  Maybe 1 dozen-and-half to 2 dozen.  :hatch:  I can't wait to see them.  Looks like Lindy has two gorria pullets from my EO eggs here. :huh:

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

Is that all Claire? I sent you 3 doz right? The fertility of the Gorrias didn't seem to be as high, but Apollo's girls were great. I wonder of his lameness, which was slight then made it lower. He is much more lame now :(

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

Mine are three weeks old now, and I think I only got three Gorrias in the end but they are too young yet to tell who is who.  I will try and take some pictures later if you want to see what they look like now.  I must say I have a lot of yellow legs in your batch :thumbs:

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

I think it was 3 dozen it was about half clears and half blood rings/travel stress.  Only one detached aircell and it was clear too.  I am thrilled to get this many to lockdown. Thanks Susan.

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

I only ended up with 4 or 5 of the dozen  if I remember correctly Susan and then only marked 2 of them but I have kept them marked and will get a picture of them for you today.

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

That little gorria roo is adorable! I was trying to stick to just the marraduna but I think I will be raising the gorria as well. I am still not sure if the only difference is the barring or if there are other differences as well.

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

Oh my, he looks so close to "the Ham" we had.   Temperament was totally the same as the brown stripers.  The Ham was named for him coming running and posing for the camera if he saw you with one!  even back in 2008 they did that stuff!  :EO:

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

Oh, cute! I do like that roo too! Thanks monika! I'm afraid life has been getting in the way of me posting very much, but it is so nice to see the results of my birds from other people. I think PG will be taking all of the Gorria this fall and continue working with them. Now if I could find someone to take on the Zillarra boys.....

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

Unfortunately Monika, she would mask all the Columbian markings of a Zillara. Now, bred to a Goria (lacking barring) would work.

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

So you are saying the solid white pullet would dominate the color and take out any of the Columbian coloring?

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

The white is recessive so with one copy you would never know it is there (some of out EO carry this trait and over time more people will probably see white birds pop up). Two copies of the recessive alleles for white and no other color will show through, you will just get a white bird.

Thus you can't get the columbian (Zilarra) that way.

To get zilarra you would need to select for birds without barring with silver instead of gold.

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

So what if I had a solid white male and a solid white female, remember guys this is so hard for me to wrap my head around! As always thanks for your patience. The reason I ask is that the fellow I got these birds from says he has a solid white male that is also coming my way. I just thought it would have been better to get Susan's boy as the line would have been further away.

Re: Anyone who got eggs from me this year...

What book, website or other resource should I read to get a better understanding of breeding chickens? I'd like to understand the genetics, but also techniques on breeding, ie, father to daughter...

Maybe I'll start a new topic. Sorry to get us off topic.

white x white = white

There are quite a few white EOs in Manitoba, you may be able to get some from there. There is a thread or two on them somewhere on the forum..
