Maraduna Quartet

A proud  Elevator ducking under the roost.  He is AMAZING with the girls.  Elevator is attentive, protective, lets them eat off his beak...
The girls continue to be almost too curious to photograph!

Re: Maraduna Quartet

Also lovely. Hard to get a good look with them being so curious. I do see lots of points on some of their combs.

You could consider crossing your marraduna and gorria M&K. Just a thought as your gorria rooster has a lovely 5 point comb and the girls combs looked good too. You will end up with heterozygous barred males but the females will be either marraduna or gorria. Just thinking out loud...

They are beautiful M&K. Nice combs on these girls, nice colour, nice size... And Elevator is a handsome fellow too! Should make for some chicks with really excellent potential!

Re: Maraduna Quartet

The girls are looking good they must like your place!  The girl in the last picture is turning out really nice, she used to get out of the coop and lay her egg behind a piece of ply wood that was leaning against wall and then come look for me to let her back into the coop!

Because of her, we have nesting boxes AND a plain piece of wood leaned in a corner.  It is still her favorite place to deposit eggs.
