My 3 pullets

Went out today to see what I could see =D Sorry some of the pictures are not clear, should have requested a new camera for Christmas ..So I'm all open for opinions on which of the three is the closest to the standards that we are putting forth and would you breed them?


Pullet #1 (black) This girl is little, only girl with yellow legs

Re: My 3 pullets

2 and 3 are very nice.  Now you just need a nice yellow legged cockerel to match to them!

Re: My 3 pullets

So if I look at pgs write up on standard and your opinions so far, we are definitely looking for goldie colored girls not the blackish girl in the first picture. The eyes are definitely not reddish bay they are more greenish, not good. The beak of the pullet #2 is more yellow but #3 is seems almost whitish. This would not be good, correct? Or are they yellow enough. Thank you so much and please keep the opinions coming.

Re: My 3 pullets

Correct eye color is still up for debate. I have some reddish bay and some green eyed EOs.

Correct about the feather color, red gold without too much grey on the girls. But I would worry just as much about pullet #1 being small when selecting against her as the color.

As for beak color, I think that skin, beak and shank color are all related. Yellow shanks should=yellow skin=yellow beak. Yellow is recessive to white so your white legged girls could carry 2 alleles for white or one for yellow, one for white. I would guess that the girl with the yellower beak carries 1 allele for yellow. All that said, Adonis my roo has yellow legs and his beak is almost white instead of yellow so I am wondering if I am wrong.

Re: My 3 pullets

Woohoo I think I actually understood what you just said :oops:  this genetics study is going to be difficult for me so if I can relate it to my birds I believe it will help me make more sense of things as we go along. So lets test me .... is that why if I breed the white legged girls to a yellow legged boy the chicks will have a better chance of being yellow legged. And if I were to breed the pullet with the more yellowish beak the offspring may have more of a chance to be yellow legged than lets say the white beaked girl? Whew! Oh my I need a smilie wiping its brow!!

I think you have it Moinika :thumbs: If you use a yellow legged roo with one of these white legged girl you will either get:
- ALL white legged chicks (if she has two white alleles) but all of the chicks will carry the allele for yellow shanks. This is more likely with the white beaked girl.
OR
- 50% white (but they will all carry an allele for yellow), 50% yellow. This is more likely with the more yellow beaked girl.

Which of Claire's Roos was the daddy, Specky or Curly?? If it was Curly the above is true. If it was Specky they will both carry the allele for yellow shanks :)

Re: My 3 pullets

It was Specky. :love: My Sweatheart.   He is in with this years pullets now.  And Sonny Jim in with the Moms.  We just got in from one of those fun evenings where all the chickens move house!  Actually I think we only moved about 60 tonight! :whistle: 

Pullet one is pretty in her own right, she looks a lot like Lindy Lous girl from me.  But not the standard.  Those pretty goldy-red mottled pullets will throw gold chicks not problem, our entire 2nd gen here (both pullets looked like that, actually they were redder) threw gold babies.  I think the leg colour will be easy to fix than the black but if she is an enormous hen you could use her, cause we can build the barn first.  Those #2 and #3 look just like mine.  Lovely birds.

=D Thank you Claire, so I think that I should start jotting this down in a book. Does anyone have anything posted already that shows how they are keeping track of the lines, and what alleles they may be carrying?

Re: My 3 pullets

I did a pdf file family tree last year with pics of as many breeders of each generation as I had.  I am a bit slap dash and not much of a record keeper really, it is all on the forums ACE and here ... :funny:  what I tell you is what I remember!  But I do have pics of those two pullets...  As our EO numbers increase here on the farm I guess I will have to write more down so I don't confuse them all. 

I'd love to hear what people do.
