I agree getting that colour back into the face is a bugger each time i got it the next one went back to a lighter colour this time the rooster has given me two young ones with the best dark colour i have had a look at in a long time if he dose this again and we retain it i have orders coming out of my ears its been a long hall to get tis far dont know how many roosters i have got shot of to get this far trev
not any better yet the Andalutions were a flop all gone two dozen eggs boy that guy has a problem my own under the birds are ok not great not i am hanging on the the ducks only 9 days to go then on the 14-17th when i get them i have two dozen prize winning Walsummers eggs to go into the bator i need to get that dark colour back into the eggs again ony two of my birds are at it the rest I have a home for Trev
i made a mistake with the last lot of silkeys two week before i started to breed i got out the shell grit with silkeys that makes the shells verry hard so i got one hatched and three halfway and stuck and the first black silky i have bread Dead back to the drawing board number one do not feed shell grit before you mate them last year was a bad year for hatching as well i would hope this year was better time will tell lets hope it gets better when it warms up a bit Trev

I had a good hatch rate this season. I don't breed anywhere near as many as you guys but I got 9 Blue and Black Australorps out of10 fertile eggs. Only 1 DIS. CK, unusual you are getting a poor hatch rate. Have you had luck with your R-Com. Usually they are reliable??? Quambie, good luck with your silkies. Often see silkies without the correct colour comb.
That's the one I ran all thought I may have got a little better need to recount the chicks , I had 13 in from D in Gero only 3 hatched so mine did OK I guess I think there are 25 chicks which would make 22 from 35 . there were lots of late DIS .I have the other going at day 13 today all going well in that but the eggs sent from NSW are all blank.
ck . my next lot of eggs are from QLD prize winning welsummer Stock now I have to keep my fingers crossed, I do not get them until about the 17/18th of next month they will be posted on the 14th you know what its like in the bush cant blame the camels any longer ? I hope I do get a good rate out of the eggs I have got from the east they have cost me a load of money so far this year ducks and chooks . So far i have not had a lot of luck except with my own time will tell
I am getting some soon from S.A. and VIC . hopefully next week but depending on time and eggs at the other end . one lot is a surprise of pure breed show lines I am hoping to get some nice ones from them.
