All hatchmates, all smaller than their standard marraduna counterparts. Stay to themselves, fast foragers, can catch flies out of mid air. I like these chickens. Pretty sure these guys were tiny from the start, ie - not Cinnamon's or LBH's offspring

Neat MD. Do you think you will keep them and select for the recessive white?

Re: Something for CR to chew on...

does that mean you are trying to get CR to take on the recessive whites?
they sure are pretty.

=D Nah, It's just that she's like a snapping turtle when she gets aholt of a genetic puzzle. Won't let go. A regular Sherlock Holmes. :applause:

I hope this winter I can catch up to where she and PG are in genetics knowledge.

I'm curious to see how they turn out, but I don't foresee trying to do anything with them... I'm not doing any brother/sister crosses, and I have a pretty good handle on who the moms are, and none of them are spectacular for size and type or egg size and quantity...
If Mr. Black and crew survive the coon onslaughts this fall and winter, I know how to make more of them.

Re: Something for CR to chew on...

=D The recessive whites I hatched from your eggs are yellow-legged as well.  I am nowhere near PG in genetics, though.  There's a few different genes which can white-out other colors, but it looks like recessive white only affect feather color, not leg color.  I think that's all we're seeing here.  I just happened to see several rws with white legs and wondered.... :)

I have been thinking that the recessive whites would be great for someone who wanted to focus on the meat aspects of the breed.  It would leave a very clean-looking bird.  They are very pretty...

Re: Something for CR to chew on...

psst.... CR...

I have 2 rwEOs, 1 pullet and 1 cockerel, as well... I believe they are both white legged, but today's fibro-fogged brain isn't so sure.  :Crazy::banginghead::Crazy:

I *do* know the rwEO cockerel that was necropsied 1.5 weeks ago (advanced squamous cell carcinoma) was in fact white legged.

I'm going *right* out to get their pics.  I can't guarantee I'll post them before tonight is up, though.  ugh!!  :chairhide:

I'd love to try and take this on... but doubt pupp will be happy about building *another* breeding pen.  :shock:  LMAO!!! I just may consider dropping my Jersey Giants in favor of this little puzzle!  :whistle:

Hmm... I don't know... My little Marraduna boy, Gregory (Peck), is *really* chesty... much more so than my rwEO, (Vanilla) "Ice."  But I know what you mean by clean looking... another reason the commercial industry likes their Cornish/Rocks.

Re: Something for CR to chew on...

I'd really like to have some data on the rate of lay on those RWEO's. Wouldn't it be interesting if they turned out to be egg laying machines?
