    Colour fed Lipochrome in the nest

    Post  BlueCobalt on Sun Jun 12 2011, 22:42

    All youngsters that are now in the nest are being colourfed, as have around 30 - 35 with clean white flights (of varying shades of white to cream!) Just thought I would share this one chick she reared, continental hen! Never usually have them feed one! And the colour is superb, this pic doesnt show it enough!! Thoughts??
    Will take another this week!! Colour looks even better!!

    Said HEN was continental, cock was my reddest bred last year, couldnt show it abroad! Nor the ACS as was judging lipochromes, although he is quite heavily varigated!! Do have some clears off the same pair though!

    David your correct, was thinking of moving it, but showed the wife as it looked unbelievable the amount they were pumping in looked like the crop was going to explode at one point, will definitely keep the hen for next year!!

    Has someone been eating tails Question Question Question The var one looks a nice size but I think you will know better after the moult. Cant really tell by the photo as the colour looks a bit patchy. But the intense colour looks quiet deep, so hope it goes through well Simon.
