Re: American Livestock Breed Conservancy Heritage Chicken Selection Guides

I am glad they help!  There is a ton of great info.  Good to apply it to a new breed like this, the principles are all there. They actually put molting into a whole new perspective...it is desirable for a bird to look ugly ad naked all at once! :whistle: The quicker they molt, the less eggs you lose as they don't lay eggs when growing new feathers.  Ones that take months and month to molt, stop laying most of that time.  If they are done in a month they are a more productive bird as you lose less eggs.
