Re: Last but not least...

All my EO chicks are from Mr Black and the 5 girls with him... The sixth hen with the big headgear isn't laying... :sad:

So it was 3 girls from Round One and 2 yellow legged girls from Round Two

I wonder who's throwing the recessive whites...

Adorable!  You must be swimming in chicks.  :chickout:  Yeah, the recessive whites are certainly popping up.  All of mine have been males for some reason.

Enjoy your fluffballs. :hatch:

You know, I went back and looked at James' pics of his flock last year in the early posts of the BYC thread, and there were whites in there too. :surfing:

Re: Last but not least...

Wow they sure are cute. Can't wait to hatch again, but I think I'll probably need to wait till next spring. Too many things to deal with right now. Escaping chickens, pesky Welsumer cockerel, building a house... Brooding more chicks would be a bad idea right now.

Our Welsummer Walt might have his name changed to Stew soon.

Well you know for sure Mr. black carries the recessive white gene, hard to say which of the girls.

Re: Last but not least...

Ut oh, did you process those other boys? Might need to give them a shot at producing no whites?

Absolutely.  One of the cockerels I hatched from Skyline eggs is recessive white, so I am sure some of my others are probably carriers.
