a breeding group
While on the subject of moving chickens around, we moved the Flashy Girls in with Tiny, Spikey into the broiler pullet tractor, Feyd into the previous Wyandotte-only tractor with the Big Butt Girls (rose combed Wyandottes from Luanne, half or full siblings to Tiny and Azar) and the two sex links Beetle and Blackie. These are roughly the first round for breeding groups. Feyd crossed with the BBGs, Tiny with the Flashy Girls, and Spikey with the broiler pullets. After we get a clutch of eggs set from Tiny, then he and Azar will switch places. When old enough, the Pretties will rotate in with Azar and Tiny, while Tribble gets a chance with the BBGs.
Now, just for a little fun, here is a pic of Thursday's eggs.
