Like the look of these  :thumbsup:

Whats the idea behind them eating the ground wheat quicker?


The idea behind ground wheat is the same principle behind wet mash, ie, birds use less energy to consume it thus speeding up/increasing consumption.

I'm going to keep back a few bags for the final fattening but not bother with it whilst they are loose.

Pure LB seem to mature the quickest but depends on the strain for I have 2. These LBxIGs are maturing pretty quick. Check out some better pics below. The BrahmaxIGs are as slow as the Orpingtons if not slower and are still cheaping.

I'll take some pics of my IG soon and put them up too. Mine are still at their leggy adolescent stage, which why KJG Hawkey believes that they have Malay in the original make up.

Really good pics Dave, thank you for posting them! I sometimes have the same problem uploading them, I find some pics work better than others and I always just do one at a time now, even though it says that you can do 4.

There a good size but look past there best to be honest and were in quite poor condition when i got them last year.
Not sure of there age but desperate to get some young stock out of them next year, then give them the chop.

Only 3 hens from them this year, will try again to put up some pics.

What size flock do you keep Robin ?

Nice pics Dave, those LBs and IGs are coming on well!

My LB flock excluding this years bred was 25. Lost a few though. The majority were bought as established breeding flock but the reality is that some were older than made out to be. I think that's why I suffered such poor fertility from my main flock. I've got 2 bloodlines and 3 breeding groups. Was meant to be 4 but having major reshuffle at the minute due to loosing 2 cocks. One more may have to go due to being aggressive as don't won't to breed that into my main bloodline.

This is one of my Jubilee cockerels. Leggy at the minute and the yellowness in the leg a good sign of purity. Note that he should be probably more Pyle in colour but still a bit young to judge on colour. Indian Game should only be fully judged on colour once they've reached full maturity.
