I got different results when I tried for Columbian, using Light Sussex, instead of a pure Ameraucanas.

Here are some pics.  I was hoping to get more birds to select from, but it was a hot summer, and my hatch rate wasn't what I hoped. Of course the useful birds were a tiny fraction of what hatched overall.  I only got 3 birds with pea combs, beard and muffs, slate shanks that are Columbian marked.  The male has a hideous tail.  But a male with dark shanks is a male with dark shanks.  He has some other good qualities, and his color is great.  Hopefully bigger progress next year.

Well I have two lines I have created with different Columbian genetics to combine and compensate for inherent problems that I am encountering.  I didn't want to start the project with immature birds to ensure they were sound and in good health and productivity before building a variety around them.  Both lines are at F2.  One line was created with Blacks, one was created with Silvers.  I will try to get some more pictures today of my progress.

Hi Patti,

I sent you a message on MeWe.  Would there be a good time we could talk again?

I'd say my flock does not have the fast molt gene, as it's hard to tell they are molting except for all the feathers.   I had Wayne's birds at one time, purchased directly from him the last year he shipped, but can't say how much blood is still in my line.  There was a lady who had Wayne's line in southern AZ, I can reach out and ask if you'd like me too.

Looks like I have a white bantam with bull neck.

I received one today also on behalf or our Alliance membership...haven't had time to open it yet.
John, in view of what you were doing today that is quite understandable.  Glad to hear everything went well today. 
Housing, Health & Hatching / Re: Thoughts about incubators on my budget

Thanks to everyone who gave input on this thread. If anyone cares, i decided to take Russís advice and be patient and wait for a cabinet incubator. After refreshing fb marketplace and craigslist every few hours for weeks I was able to jump on this older  gqf 1202. It looks like itís in pretty good condition other than it needs a good cleaning. It even has the original paperwork. Best part is, it was only $75!

If it works well for you, that is a steal!   Congrats!
