    new little ones

    These hatched over Easter. There are 9 pure Tomaru (from a friend's 2002 legal imports from Germany via Switzerland) and 6 of my reconstructed line. I had a barrier set up in the incubator nearly up to the heating element, but the gangly little rascals jumped it. Now I have no idea who's who.

    A friend said next time use an upside down container over them, the open bottom on the grid will provide enough air flow.

    The lone different one in the immediate foreground is a Tuzo.



    A few even have black faces and combs like they are split for the fibromelanistic trait. The Japanese standard calls for Tomaru to be black from face to toe at maturity after the chick spots are lost.



    In case you're wondering, this is what a Tomaru is. They sing. LOL

    This is my line's grandfather:


    The rooster I have now has the prized beautiful undulating two-tone voice, but I've not gotten him on tape yet.

    Wowsers. Tell me that noise won't wake you up in the morning, and I don't know what else could.

    LOL Can't hear them out at the barn unless the house windows are open.

    Aren't they though.

    I think so, but who knows. I thought I could now, but they all look the same. I thought the ones with more bits of white would be mine, but the number of them and egg shells do not correspond. So even the pures have those patches as well. I had to rework the line because the pures only had 15-20% hatchability from being inbred before import. I used two related breeds and bred back to fix them up. Mine pretty much look and sound pure now, but have 85% hatchability. The crow and double lung capacity is a simple recessive trait that can vary in degree of expression. So it's not difficult to get back from a cross. F2s express it and then you just keep breeding the best to intensify it.

    I've never had one, but that's what culls are for, right?

    Well they have the Koeyoshi beat. LOL

    They try to keep their mouth shut. LOL There aren't any of those in the US though.
