Friday was hatch day; my homebred Swedish Flowers and Polish, and Gold Laced and Silver Laced Wyandottes all the way from rural Quebec. It was a great hatch.
Most of the Swedes are going to be a young person’s 4H project (just think! I might see them competing at the Saanich Fair in September!), the Polish are for sale and the Wyandottes are my new project bird.
My sister had Wyandottes, they were gorgeous but horrible miserable birds; she must have got a bad line. Lots of people say their Wyandottes are sweet, docile, great layers, so I am giving them a try. Got more eggs in the incubator too, Red Laced Blue this time, from Alberta.
Breeder’s prerogative, I will keep the best ones and sell the rest.
