6 month bb-red long-tail cockerel, Astin line937 viewsThis is a bbr cockerel that I hatched from some eggs from Toni-Marie. His father grew 28" saddles on the ground and his mother is known to produce non-molting sons. The pairing was chosen for me by Toni-Marie so that the rec. white hen my line descends from is also in his background. I am looking forward to making another family line by breeding him to the sisters of my white rooster, Hakuraikou.

Japanese integrated chicken waterer948 viewsThis is an antique earthenware integrated chicken waterer. These were commonly used for ground dwelling birds and may be set into a shallow saucer to help prevent it from being soiled too quickly due to scratching fowl. It is known as a niwatori mizunomiki, 鶏水飲器 (integrated chicken waterer).

My guard / herding dog745 viewsThis is my dog. She's 135 lbs. and great with the birds. She's never been formally trained for herding, but she knows where I want her and what to do by the tone of my voice and to where I point with my hand. I don't know if there's such a thing as a natural, but she's close to it. She helps with guarding mostly, but will help put the odd stubborn bird into the barn for the night. Her father was a large 150 Lb German Rottweiler named Caesar and mother a Doberman Pinscher, but she took mostly after her father's side of the family. Such a hybrid is termed a "Rotterman".

Hakuraikou at two years and eleven months of age1534 viewsHakuraikou, Rogers line - His longest tail feathers are 6' 6.75" and 6' 9" (2.06m). The adult feathers grew in two stages. He grew some during year one and others during year two. The longest feathers were grown in during year one and are one year ahead of the others. Usually, in cases such as this the adult feathers from year one would have been pulled out during the acquisition of the rest of the adult plumage during year two. Doing that would ensure that all feathers reach roughly the same time.
