Euskal oiloa gorria?

These two girls I think are close to Euskal oiloa gorria. Interested to hear what others think. Perhaps a bit too much black in their feathers?

So far I have not hatched any unbarred roosters that I would say fit the description of the gorria variety.

Susan if you plan to go ahead with this variety we should talk about transferring these two from my flock to yours...

Re: Euskal oiloa gorria?

To be fair, I call my 2 "gorria", but they still need improving as well. Yes PG, I believe there are too many dark feathers there, but I think the gorria will be easier than the marradunna to get true to type. Maybe someone needs to do a Gorria standard now.... :)

Yup! 'Cause one of my little pullets isn't so little any more, and she's not a pullet! :duh:
It's a meaty little unbarred roo!

Re: Euskal oiloa gorria?

I would agree to much black in the feathers. Aren't the Gorria only supposed to have black on the tips of the hackle feathers? Red every where else?

Re: Euskal oiloa gorria?

The black feathers will have to be bred out.  My marradunna have too much black in them too. 

YH too bad we can't send our extra black to you for your Beltza project!  They are only supposed to have black in the wingtips, tails and hackles. 

MD which pullet turned into a rooster?  My very first hatchery order I had a Black crested white polish pullet she looked so different from my buff laced polish pullet, Spiky crest, sickled tail feathers :whistle: but I didn't clue in until she crowed!

Re: Euskal oiloa gorria?

Wish you could send them my way :roadtrip:  I think I have found where I will be getting my "Black" from. I have found a guy an hour north of me with SQ Black Plymouth Rocks. They should fit the bill just fine to get Extended black into my EOs without too many negatives. He has 2 chicks currently I am working on getting. I think Zilarra will be much easier to perfect. I already have several almost solid white EOs and 1 solid white. If necessary I could possible cross with Colombian Plymouth Rocks. The guy with the Black Rocks also breeds SQ Colombians. Now I just need more pens/coops :chairhide:

Re: Euskal oiloa gorria?

@gubi - One of the chicks in my Round Two batch. I was showing it to the DW, and said feel how heavy this pullet is compared to the others... She said "Well, it's not a pullet is it?!" I did a double take and sure enough, his comb and wattles are jamming harder than the other six barred roos!

gonna call him Forrest, because you never know what you're gonna get. :whistle:
I'll post pics this week.
