Re: I have opened up a can of marraduna worms on another forum

It would be nice if we got that kind of consistency in color in our EO's! :whistle:

Re: I have opened up a can of marraduna worms on another forum

Thank you for posting the pics YH! I actually think the chicks look a lot like the marraduna EOs I have hatched and like the pics quite a few others have posted. I guess that's good! Mostly yellow fuzzy butts but with some more cinnamon colored. Any other colored chick must indicate some different genes mixed in.

I would still like to see if some of our older EOs have grey fluff instead of white. But I didn't keep any birds with much grey so I might need to wait until I hatch more this year.

So much to look for, so much to learn!

I have 2 20 week or so Grey boys with white legs (that we will probably keep til spring) if you need a fluff update or more data.  Sunny's bloomers is quite white and Specky and Sunny Jims' are cream, but I can check the underfluff if you want.  I have Curly and two other young roos with more darker red/black markings too.  Should we take a piece of paper out or something as reference?

I tell you who has a surprisingly dark grey, my wheaten Ameraucan girls.
