Gorria Trio

This group is staying nameless for now.  Unless they give us lovely golden Gorria chicks I won't keep them. Boy will go to table and girls to laying homes.  All three are very flecked with black.

Re: Gorria Trio

They don't look to have much black in the photos M&K. They look pretty good to me in fact. Remember black in the gorria is like grey in the marraduna, it's just the paint on the barn.

Are they good other than color? How are they for size? How about temperament?

Re: Gorria Trio

He is built like a brick, solid! But he has a Pendescenca crown :banginghead:
all three are friendly and have strong yellow legs and beaks and proper EO shape

Re: Gorria Trio

Look like they are a decent starting point to me. Too bad you are getting rid of them. Would have been worth a go.

Re: Gorria Trio

Ah well, what would be the fun if we started out with perfect chickens! I hope someone out there is interested in a project and convinces you to sell them... Or cross the best of them with your marraduna as I suggested.

Re: Gorria Trio

We are letting them have a kick at the can, make sure he is fertile, see what the offspring is like... we aren't in a rush to rehome

Re: Gorria Trio

It would be too bad not to use them. I hope they go to a breeding home too.

Re: Gorria Trio

I hope you are pleasantly surprised with the babies M&K! They deserve a kick at the can for sure.

Re: Gorria Trio

They look good M&K are those the girls you got from me last summer???  If so they are from you Susan.  All the Gorria from those eggs I got from you turned out to be three girls, I had no rooster.  So M&K had one or had a lead on one.  He is a nice looking Gorria roo :thumbsup:
Definatley worth breeding them.

Re: Gorria Trio

My Gorria roo and girls from Susan are beauties as well, I agree and am glad that you will be breeding him. I will be breeding MrOr later this summer. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us.

Yep, they are your girls.  The one with the most black flecking and lightest build went to a layer home.  The boy came from Susan too via Claire.

Re: Gorria Trio

Well if you need another Gorria hen I still do have one here.  She is not huge but lays a pretty big egg.  She is just in my layer pen.

Re: Gorria Trio

Thanks FLF!

It is tricky being new to chicken and starting out with three seperate colours at once!  At least I can keep reminding myself, "shape and size, build the barn then paint it..."

If things work out ok with the trio, I may be interested in purchasing your hen.

Thank you!
