TG - I have ameracunas (solid white and the orangy/brown), cuckoo marans, buff orps, wyandottes, barred rocks, california whites and lakenvelders - all hens. Those ladies all run with a big red sussex roo and now the dark brahma so their offspring would be mixed but interesting, that's for sure.
My purebred breeding pairs are blue cochins, spangled hamburgs, and silver laced polish which are just now coming of age and aren't laying yet.
If you want to try incubating for the heck of it, let me know. Every egg I crack into the frying pan these days is fertile from the mixed group if you don't mind mixed breeds - otherwise I expect it would be spring before the purebred group started giving me fertile eggs on a regular basis.
This fall will be a major molt for half of my group. Should be interesting, that's for sure!
Clippityclop is finally getting to spend some time in the saddle!
