Some pictures of the 2015 Basque "crop"

I am pretty happy with quite a few of this year's hatch. Most of my pair matings have worked out pretty well . Well at least the marraduna ones.

Re: Some pictures of the 2015 Basque "crop"

These ones are from eggs from my own flock Monika =D

The red cuckoo all have Foxy as the daddy, a cockerel I hatched last year, and the moms of most are 3 of my best red cuckoo hens.  Brown banded are from an older hen (who is now determinedly broody!) from the black horse ranch line. Blue banded are Amber, she is from Amblecrofts PQ x hens. Purple banded are from one of my best pullets hatched last spring.

The ones from eggs from Paula are much younger but hopefully will grow up to be just as lovely.

Re: Some pictures of the 2015 Basque "crop"

:funny: gubi where did your space bar go??

I have noticed the color difference in the pullets from Paula, they are quite a bit darker than mine but also have quite a lot of grey. Some of mine are too light  and some have grey as well. The pullet in front and centre right of picture 2 for example I think is close to the color I am working towards. I want just a bit more red to the gold but not too much.

The males are also generally too light and they often lack the darker red on the wings.

Re: Some pictures of the 2015 Basque "crop"

Sometimes when I press the space bar I get a question mark showing up in the place where you type the web address and the next word is typed there instead of here!  Not sure why it has happened before but I can't remember how I fixed it that time.  It seems to work just fine now!

I have a lot of grey in mine too especially in my cockerels this year.  Lisa is probably thinking no wonder with the rooster I was using!  I hope my younger batch will be better they are from a different rooster. 

What do you think of the shafting on the chest of that pullet in the second picture?  The fourth picture the one in the center is that the same hen?  That's the shade that most of mine are.  You have a nice group of pullets and cockerels to choose from!

Good question on the shafting, I'm not actually sure what is correct. With so many things to work on and worry about I have to admit I haven't paid much attention.

It's hard to tell who is who and where there are repeats in the photos as well. In a few weeks I will be going through them with a friend to try to select my keepers. I'm going to need a copy of the SOP in hand. With so many traits to select for it's going to be challenging.
