Deb, Am writing to you directly. CJR
: Well Jean that second row cock is fantastic. I have got to get some good pics of the birds up for you. I think you will be quite pleased at what you see if I can get some decent pics up LOL
: Your going to have to trust me though the females are exceptional, the stippling shows on the main tail feathers,hackles are nicely stipped, deep deep salmon chest running all the way under breast area. Abundant cushion with overlay of feathers on main tail feathers. Nice spread. I have one daughter out of your hen and she looks just like her mom she is the one that will definatly be shown!
: there is not much more I can say about the pics on your site they speak for themselves of the quality. Israel was quite impressed and wanted to know where you got the birds. Of course I explained to him. Said mom the females look like yours but what are you doing wrong with the males LOL I just looked at him and said thanks son LOL Told him it just gives us another goal, we will keep working at it.
: Jean email me about buying birds, I have started a slush fund LOL plus when I sell at the show the money is all mine LOL I won't know what to do with myself with Nat not there spending my money as fast as I make it LOL
: : Top row. l to r. Pics 1,2, COCK 11Y, my leading breeding cock. Pic3, COCK 13Y, in FL and siring some great birds. I have a daughter and sent 2 daughters to Ric, that were hard to part with. I also have a Mar30 hatched son, that I have been keeping for just the right home. ???
: : Second row, Pic1, cockerel #1G at Decatur, lst LB K. Pic2, cockerel #11G, BB Richmond, 2001. Pic3 cockerel #2G MI. These full brothers, were just 3 out of 20, almost all which were great birds and some are still great producers.
: : When I finish with NoordShow, England and Germany albums on my website, there will be an album of just my birds, growing up, and you will see some of the other brothers of these boys. I still have their mother, #19P, and have recently sent off some promising BLBs hatched out of her eggs, and I still have a BLB cockerel and two of her pullets, May 30 hatch, by the BLB cockerel that was BV at Lucasville in May, that I just can't part with right now--but will, later. Great birds show promise by 8-10 weeks, but you cannot be SURE until 10 mos to a year for cockerels, 6-7 mos. for pullets.
: : I have a truly promising LB cockerel, May hatch, sired by a 1/2 brother to the above mentioned, LB cockerels. Am keeping him on watch. . Maybe I should send him to you?? He has 3 full sisters that I am sorting out their new home--need to make room for the 20 LB and BLB and Splash babies. The 6 Splash are spoken for, also some of the others, and they are just 7-8 weeks old. Unfortunately most are cockerels, but there should be some good ones. One lady is taking 2 Ks. I think I sentyou the picture of the BLB cock I am using now?? If not, I will, and some of the chicks are from that pen, one or two from a CLB pullet.
: : I have seen few male Dutch at a show in Europe, without full tail and many lesser sickles--it is the first thing you see! No one wants to hear why we do not have more of them here in the U.S., so I won't repeat the answer now! But the females carry part of the story.
: : I don't have spell-check on the Discussion board, so may have to delete this after I post??
: : CJR
: : : First row 2nd pic now that shows sickles the same as 3rd row second pic the length of the lesser sickels Jean. No way I'll never get that Oh my gosh. What is the history on the 3rd row second pic of the cock?
: : : I need to go back to the drawing board, my females yes they ae good real good but the males should I feed them more Jean LOL
