Breeding / Re: Wheaten chick down
« Last post by Mike Gilbert on July 05, 2022, 01:27:08 PM »
All I can speak to is the experience I've had with my own lines of wheaten bantams.   Different lines may yield different results than mine.   In mine, the very light downed chicks resulted in light creamy females and darker than desired males.  Extreme sexual dimorphism.   So why don't you keep track of yours and let us know how they turn out?   Thanks for being curious - that is how we learn.
Breeding / Wheaten chick down
« Last post by Jessica Rodgers on July 04, 2022, 11:04:27 PM »
I was re-reading the info posted under the pinned topic of chick phenotype and John Blehm mentioned something about hopefully breeders would be taking notes as the chicks grew/matured from the light yellow chick down vs the darker yellow chicks. Has anyone done this yet?
I recently hatched out a handful of chicks from a cock bird of a different line as a side project and I hatched a couple of these really light creamy chicks from him. I’m curious if there is any correlation between the shade of yellow down and their adult plumage. These chicks will receive wing bands soon so I’ll be taking notes as they mature. I’d love to compare notes if anyone has done this already.

Russ, I think you should run for office.   We need more than four people on the Board, if for no other reason to spread the workload.
Exhibiting, Promoting & Club Notes / 2022 election year

I read in the Summer News Letter this is an election year? If so I figured I would start a topic to remind all our members that a club is only as strong as it’s members, and many hands make light work. So if you want to get involved this is a perfect time. More importantly I want to give a big shout out to our current board and president for their selfless service. I was debating on putting my name in the hat for some position, not sure which lol, but was wondering how much interest others have as well? I took a couple years off due to family things (last child graduating and starting college etc) and to spend more time trying to get my breeding flock numbers up etc.
