Re: Marraduna pullets for sale

Here are two of the five cockerels I have kept back.  What do you think of them?  The cockerel in post #26 looks really meaty to me but does he have split wing?  If so how big of a problem is it?  Other then the show what else does it affect?

Re: Marraduna pullets for sale

I like the color of the roo in #25, he is a very dark red gold which I have seen in a few of my marraduna here but not very many. If it a trait I have noticed income of my M&K birds. At first I thought they were heterozygous barred but some are just dark. I think maybe the color is too dark red gold to out standard but I haven't decided yet.

I like the size of #26. It's hard to tell from the photo without spreading out his wing if your boy has split wing. Sometimes it is just feathers slow to grow in.

Split wing is a DQ in all APA breeds (well I think accept one new breed just being accepted). Split wing has been popping up in my EOs starting last year. It is one trait I have been culling for no exceptions so far although I can't say why I am so set against that flaw above others like side sprigs...

Re: Marraduna pullets for sale

They are both nice, I really like #25 as well.  Nice gold chest.  He looks very similar as a juvenile to "gmb's" boy she got from me via my friend Adam.  He turned out to be quite the looker :thumbs:  Not familiar with split wings, never noticed any here.  What causes it???

Re: Marraduna pullets for sale

Thanks for your input.  I just noticed in all the pictures on the 26 cockerel that his wing doesn't fold up nicely.  The pictures are a bit sun bleached but 25 for sure has better color and is a big, long boy but compared to 26 he just doesn't have the bulkyness.

Re: Marraduna pullets for sale

Can we get a picture of that wing spread out?


When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)
