To those that are looking for updates on the micro program we are beginning with our mascot, Angel, we have some updated pics for you.
Angel went from being a bundle of cuteness to an absolutely gorgeous micro frizzle! Angel's tail plume is still developing, but his feather quality is beautiful. Angel is about 8 months old and still slightly larger than a standard size can of beans (we know we should provide scientific data height/weight etc., but take our word at the moment that he is really tiny!). His long curly, frizzle feathers makes him appear a little bigger than he really is.
We have a number of micro hens we are assessing as mates for him. On a side note, never assume that rooster hen combinations always work. We tested him with "hen A" and they immediately bonded. We then tested him with "hen B". It was an immediate nasty fight that would have resulted with one of them dying for sure, so we quickly broke that party up. We then introduced "hen C". Another match made in heaven. We then put hens A & C in with Angel and after a very brief pecking order determination, they settled into a peaceful trio. Updates to come on the breeding program, after we ourselves see what the hatches look like.
